Cold Weather Mexican Soup

I made this last night, based on a soup Trader Joe's was sampling.
(I added chicken, beans & celery to their recipe)

Cold Weather Mexican Soup

Boil water (about 2/3 full in stockpot)
then add:
enough chicken bouillon cubes for a good broth.
4 russet potatoes, each skinned & cut into large cubes.
1 large pkg Louis Rich chicken pieces, cutting any that are too big.

When potatoes are cooked, add:
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 jar Trader Joe's Habenero & Lime Salsa (if you don't have Trader Joe's, any GOOD medium-spicy salsa will do)
4 stalks cut-up celery
1 small pkg. frozen sweet corn
1 can (undrained) pinto beans
1 can red kidney beans.

Boil till flavor mixes well.
Top each individual bowl with a large serving of shredded cheddar, and put a few thick tortilla chips on top.

It's also delish when you float a few slices of avocado on top!

This might be good if I knew what "&amp" is.

It's the HTML code for the ampersand & symbol. Sometimes when you cut and paste into a Web form, you get code instead of the symbol that was intended.

I've just edited it.
Actually, it wasn't a cut/paste problem,GG, it's just that this forum had a different "language" at one time, and when we switched to a newer one, the old recipes & chat we'd posted all came out with the crazy "&" in it. So many new people got confused!

Anytime! :)

Actually, thanks for bringing this thread back. I was writing out my menu for the week when I saw this and remembered how much my older boy likes it. (I don't usually look at my soups when it's so hot outside). I figure we'll just turn up the A/C when I make it ;)
