14 ounces skinless boneless chicken breast
14 ounces lowfat chicken broth
14 ounces black beans, canned, drained and rinsed
11 ounces corn kernels, drained or Green Giant
15 ounces canned diced tomatoes, with juice
1 small onion, chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
1 jalapeno, or to taste, minced
1 teaspoon adobo spice, or chili powder

Poach the chicken (or however you want to do it, but boiled is just easy). Drain and rinse little stock pot, chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

Meanwhile, sweat the onions, jalapeno and bell pepper in just a smidge of oil until softened and translucent. Add garlic and cook a minute or two longer.

Put the chopped chicken back in the little stock pot, add broth, tomatoes, beans, corn and spices. Add the onion mixture. Stir and taste, add salt if needed. Simmer around an hour to let the flavors develop and blend. Add a little more adobo spice (or chili powder) if needed.

I didn’t buy anything to actually cook last week since I hadn’t made up my mind what to make. I guess I was counting on providence to take care of the menu. So, last night I started going through what I had in the fridge and the cupboard and came up with this completely original chicken stew.

And when it was done, I realized it’s basically the same as Campbell’s Southwestern Chicken tortilla soup. Or whatever they call it. It was good anyway.
