It is full of fiber and lower in calories than many taco type soups (and quick). In a large pan combine the beans, broth, corn, salsa, chicken and water.

Does anyone have a recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup? Safeway now sells various kinds of soup pre-made and they are very good but pretty expensive. Thanks, Sandy
