Tender chunks of chicken breast combine with savory salsa and corn kernels to make a delicious soup for cold days. Try crumbling a few tortilla chips over your soup with a sprinkle of Mexican cheese.

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 can (14 1/2 fluid ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 cups loose-pack frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1 cup bottled chunky salsa

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


It was a hit!

This was so easy! Instead of frozen corn, I too drained a can of whole kernel corn. To make it a little heartier, I also added a can of drained (then rinsed) black beans to it and after topping with the cheese, I added a dab of sour cream. As far as making a meal, it sure can't get much easier than that and everyone loved it!

A Great Variation

Trying using a can of kernel corn (drained), the kind that has red pepper in it. This adds a flavorful zip.

This soup tasted excellent and it was so easy to make. For the salsa I used a chipotle salsa which gave the soup a kick with a smoky flavor. Great meal on a busy fall night.

This was an EXCELLENT dinner to share with my family on a cold winter night. They loved the taste while I loved how easy it was to make. (If you have leftovers, that's okay, the next day taste as well as the first.) I would offer this recipe to anyone who would love to see their family respond to a great dinner.
