Why I Love This Recipe

Add some fire to a cold day with a smoky, spicy Southwest-style soup. Chili powder, cumin, chipotle chile and pepper jack cheese add heat to the cream and broth base canned chicken (a great lean protein food) and canned vegetables make preparation a cinch!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup cooked wild rice
1 cup canned, sliced carrots, drained
2 cans (3 ounces each) premium chunk chicken breast in water, drained
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch ground chipotle chile
1 cup shredded, pepper jack cheese, divided
1/3 cup evaporated fat-free canned milk or heavy cream
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Cilantro sprigs for garnish


Directions

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; add onion and celery. Sauté, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until softened. Stir in soup and broth. Add rice, carrots, chicken, chili powder, cumin, chipotle chile and 3/4 cup cheese; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors; stir in evaporated milk and chopped cilantro. Garnish with remaining cheese and cilantro sprigs.
