Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, peppers and 1 tsp salt; cook, stirring often, until onion is soft, 7-10 minutes.

Step 2

Add garlic, both chili powders and cumin; mix well and cook for 1 minute.

Step 3

Add water, bouillon powder and tomatoes; increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and bring to a simmer; add chicken, beans and corn to pot.

Step 4

Cover and simmer until cooked through, 10-15 minutes (or longer)!

Step 5

Remove chicken to a plate; let cool 2-3 minutes.

Step 6

Shred chicken with two forks; add back to soup. Stir in lime juice and remaining 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste); serve topped with yogurt, cilantro and scallions.

Step 7

(Low fat sour cream can be used instead of yogurt.)

Comfort food on a cold, snowy evening! I saw the weather forecast and knew I wanted a spicy soup simmering all day in the slow cooker... and the results were fabulous. I made as directed, using sour cream instead of yogurt. We did add shredded Cheddar to the garnishes. My kids ate their soup over some rice.
