Nach-yo Mamma's Chicken SoupThis is my husband’s favorite soup. It’s very easy to make and can be done either on the stove or in the crock pot. I took lots of pics but I don’t want you to think that it’s complicated so I’ve compiled them into one fun little collage. It takes only a few minutes to actually put this soup together.

Here we go:

Nach-yo Mamma's Chicken SoupFrom left to right, top to bottom; you know, just like you’d read a book:

1.Chop your onion, red pepper, and zucchini.

2.Put a dash of olive oil in a large skillet (with high sides).
Heat to medium and add your peppers and onions.

3.Chop your garlic. (or if you prefer you can zest it like I did here for my garlic bread)

4.Add garlic to the pan.

5. Add your corn.

6. Let all of that cook for about 5 minutes (more or less depending on what your kids need at the moment.)

7. Add your tomatoes (not drained).

8. This isn’t in the recipe but I added some garlic salt with cilantro.

9. Add your tomato sauce.

10. Add your chicken.

11. Add black beans.

12. Add chicken broth and cumin.

See? That wasn’t so bad. You’re well on your way to an amazing bowl of soup! One more step.

    Ooh, this sounds similar to my Vegetarian (or chicken, depending on my mood) soup that I make all the time. I don’t use peppers though, so I think I’ll try adding that next time! #FoodieFriday
