The other day I read another blog that had a recipe for chicken salsa soup. Theirs was a little bit different and used just salsa and chicken broth… I made ours with some vegetables in it as well and thought it turned out well.
I used the entire box of broth, the whole jar of salsa, one potato, one onion and two carrots chopped up. Plus some strips of chicken… I think this package was about 3/4lb and I cut the strips into soup sized pieces. I boiled the chicken in the broth to cook it first and then removed it and let it cool for a little bit. After removing the chicken I put the salsa into the broth and used our stick blender (or you could use a regular blender or food processor) to blend up the salsa so it was creamy smooth. I guess you could leave it chunky if you’d rather. After that I tossed in the chopped veggies and chicken and cooked it some more until the vegetables were done. Super easy!
Served with bread on a Fall-themed platter and flowers cut from outside in a vase I decorated with wheat-printed ribbon. So festive! I tried to decorate the soup with cheese but it all sank and got melty and was hard to eat. Croutons would have been a better idea, which is what the other blog served with their soup!
