  1. My son and husband are both VERY picky eaters, when I mentioned this soup and the green salsa, I got a funny look from them both. I made it though, and they both LOVED it. In fact we had leftovers for 2 days and they ate it all up. I recommend this super easy chicken chili!!!!!!!!

      Thank for sharing, Tanya! So glad they liked it!

    Saute onions,etc., in only 1 T of EVO & add water or broth if needed as onions will sweat & saute with less oil = less calories. Use 1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped/shredded rotisserie chicken for a shortcut. I used 3 cups of chicken broth and 1 cup of water to cut the salt a bit as I had no low sodium broth and also used Trader Joes’s Salsa Verde. Cooked my soup longer so need to smash my beans. Try using garlic POWDER and not garlic salt, especially if using regular broth and not low sodium. I crunched a small amount of low salt corn chips on top. Delish!

  3. I would also be interested in the nutrition information. Thinking of serving for Super Bowl!

    1. Hi Cindy. It’s just me. No nutritionist on my staff at this point. Maybe some day. It is a pretty healthy chili! -Amy

    Just wondering nutrition facts on this delicious soup. I just joined weight watchers and this soup seems to be right up weight watchers alley. Just need the nutrition count to do the math. Thanks and thanks for such a wonderful soup.

    1. Linda – you can just put the ingredients and servings into the Weight Watchers recipe builder and it will give you the points plus value. I know it is an extra step but long term it’s great because all your favorite low point recipes are in one place.

      Good luck with your weight loss goals!
