Mexican Black Bean Soup

This flavorful, low-carb soup makes a great lunch the next day too. If you can’t find canned fire roasted tomatoes, you can use canned diced tomatoes with green chiles.


Cooking spray

2 teaspoons canola oil
½ onion, diced

1 pound skinless, boneless, chicken breast, cut into ½-inch cubes

½ teaspoon Adobo seasoning (such as Goya); divided

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

40 ounces fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth

14.5-ounce can fire roasted tomatoes

1 tablespoon chili powder

½ teaspoon cumin

½ cup frozen corn

15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained


1Spray a large soup pot with cooking spray. Add oil and onion and sauté over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until clear.
2Add chicken and season with ¼ teaspoon Adobo seasoning and pepper. 
3Cook chicken until slightly brown, about 6-7 minutes.
4Add remaining ingredients (including the other ¼ teaspoon Adobo seasoning). Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
