“I got this recipe by eyeballing an HEB soup kit. All of the measurements are negotiable, depending on your personal tastes; I add different amounts of veggies each time depending on my mood/cravings. This also freezes well, which really helps out for a quick but healthy meal on short notice! I always use fresh veggies; they come out better.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. De-skin and boil the chicken breasts. You can use 10 cups of water if you want to save the chicken stock for the soup, but I usually drain it and continue the recipe with fresh water.
  2. Chop an de-seed bell pepper, onion, and sorranos. Slice corn off of cobb, and mince or chop the garlic. Saute these veggies with the olive oil for 5 minutes.
  3. Add veggies to the chicken, water, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Saute the roma tomatos for 5 minutes and add to the soup.
  5. Boil the soup for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the lime juice and cilantro and serve. On top of each bowl, add 1/2 oz. cheese and a few tortilla chips.
  7. If you plan on freezing this soup, do not add the cheese or tortilla chips until just before serving.
