Mexican Chicken and Vegetable Soup

With an ice storm ahead of us here in Middle Tennessee, Aly from Backyard to Ballroom couldn’t have picked a better dish to be stuck at home eating!! Serve us up some soup, Aly!!!

This time of year, we’ve got to do anything we can to stay healthy and on track. I find one of the easiest steps I can take is to make quick, healthy dishes ahead of time that keep well and are easy to reheat. Soups like these are filled with veggies and lean protein to fill you up, but not weigh you down, when you’re zooming around town. Fresh, healthy and so delicious, this is the perfect thing to make when you have a few minutes this weekend and then enjoy it all week so you can have at least one less thing to worry about!

See you guys next month!!

Mexican Chicken and Vegetable Soup


  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • 6 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2-14 oz cans roasted tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat angel hair pasta
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 t turmeric

  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium and add onion, celery, and carrots and sauté until onions are translucent. Add garlic and jalapeño and stir about one minute. Add tomatoes, stock and chicken and bring to a boil. Once chicken is cooked, about 15 minutes, remove chicken from pot, cool slightly and shred.
