Servings: 10


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 cans black beans drained
  • 4 cans diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cans green chilis (small cans, i used old el paso)
  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 1 bunch green onion sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large pot over medium heat add the olive oil. Next, add the garlic and onion and saute until fragrant. Add 2 of the cans of black beans, all of the cans of tomatoes, 2 of the cans of green chilis and the chicken broth. bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Next, add the chicken breasts and bring back up to a boil. Lower the heat and cover the pot. Let the chicken cook in the soup for 30 minute or until the chicken internal temp is 165.
  • Remove the chicken from the soup and set aside to cool. Using a stick blender or a standing blender puree the soup until its smooth or to your desired consistency (i like mine a little bit chunky)
  • Add the cumin, cayenne, garlic salt,oregano, a few grinds of salt and pepper, the final 2 cans of black beans and bell pepper and allow the soup to simmer another 10 minutes.
  • The chicken should be cool enough to shred with two forks and then you can add it back to the soup and continue to simmer for 10 more minutes.
  • When youre ready to serve or portion into containers top each serving with a small handful of fresh chopped cilantro and sliced green onions.
  • If youre feeling fancy and have some extra calories to spare you can top your soup with hot sauce, sour cream/plain greek yogurt, avocado, and some shredded cheese! (be sure to measure and add the calories for your toppings since they arent included in the recipe!)
