I know it is not soup weather, but it IS getting closer to back-to-school and that means slow cooker meals, easy to reheat soups, and low maintenance dinners and leftovers. I need fast and easy for the first few weeks of school chaos, and this Chipotle Chicken Tomato Soup fits the bill.
I looked at what I had in the pantry and checked out the recipe database at Cooking Light. Soon, I had enough Chipotle Chicken and Tomato soup to last for a few meals. I have not tried to freeze this soup, but I doubt I will ever have enough left after a couple of days.
What I love most about this soup is I can have it on the table in 20 minutes. Because it uses pre-cooked chicken, all I really have to do is heat up the rest of the ingredients and serve. During my weekend meal-prep, I usually pre-cook a large batch of chicken just for recipes like this. Putting in the extra time on the weekends is very handy for late nights during the week.
This is extremely versatile. If you would rather not have a spicy base, season with basil and oregano for an Italian influence. I just love quick, easy, and flexible flavors. This one hit the spot!
