Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Fiona Haynes
This is one of my favorite soups. It's hearty enough to serve as a meal, needing only the addition of a little fat-free sour cream, and some crumbled baked tortilla chips.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 26 minutes

Total Time: 36 minutes


  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 large red pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 15-ounce cans reduced sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 16-ounce jar mild salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked skinless white-meat chicken, chopped


Heat oil on medium heat in a Dutch oven or soup pot. Sauté onions, carrots and peppers for 5 minutes. Stir in cumin and chili powder and cook for 1 minute. Add black beans, broth and salsa. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in cooked chicken and simmer for 5 more minutes.
