If you like spicy food, you'll love this chicken soup recipe. Chicken Taco Soup is a hearty combination of chicken, beans, fresh coriander, tomatoes, taco seasonings, with avocado and tortilla chips (optional) on top. Chicken taco soup is a perfect dinner idea for busy weeknights.

Yield: Serves 4

  • 2 boneless & skinless chicken breasts (400 g), cut into small cubes
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup dried red kidney beans (150 g), or 1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 30 g taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • tortilla chips (optional)
  • salt

If you use dried red kidney beans, soak them in water over night (about 10-15 hours), changing the water couple of times. Then drain the beans. Place the red kidney beans with 6 cups water in a pot. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat until cooked, about 50-55 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Note: If you use canned beans, skip the part above. Just drain, rinse and set aside.

Heat the cooking oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
