Southwestern Veggie Soup

I had a roasted chicken sitting in the fridge from a few nights ago and normally I would have the time to take the carcass and cook it all day to make my own broth and soup stock.  Today’s recipe was used with this left over chicken, only not the broth, but the actual meat of the chicken.

Southwestern Veggie Soup – Fitnessmomwinecountry style


  • Shredded chicken breast
  • Avoccado
  • Cilantro
  • Yellow Onion
  • Corn
  • Black Beans
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Bacon {optional}
  • Red Potato
  • Mushrooms
  • Green Onion
  • Lemon OR Lime
  • Veggie Broth OR Chicken Broth {low sodium}

Cut and chop all ingredients, sautee and simmer in the broth.  Add a dash of sea salt and fresh ground pepper {heavy on the pepper if you are like me}. Cook two pieces of bacon {totally optional} just for flavor and add them to your sautee.  Shred your chicken breast and add.

Once you have simmered until all ingredients are cooked al dente, spoon into a bowl and top with fresh cilantro and slice a fresh avocado and add to the top.  Squeeze a fresh lemon or lime and add your choice of side.  We did a corn tortilla with this.

This made for a great lunch after my boot camp workout today and both my hubby and I enjoyed it.  A great easy, fast and HEALTHY lunch.


ENJOY, Lynda ♥

  1. I’m getting hungry now seeing that good food! 🙂

  2. This looks so GOOD! Is is the cilantro that gives it the Southwest kick? I have a recipe but it asks for a specific seasoning that I can’t seem to find. This would be easy and I LOVE avocados!
    I don’t shop smart, but my husband does, he loves to cook and I like to make things healthy in 10 minutes or less 😉
    This one I could manage though! Pinning!
