BBQ Chicken Soup

I was craving some type of chicken tortilla soup a couple of days ago so I started to throw in a few random ingredients. I noticed a new bottle of Bulls Eye BBQ sauce I had just bought and thought, "Eh, why not?" So I poured some in and came up with a new smoky-flavored soup! It was delicious. I loved the familiar flavors and tastes of the regular ingredients of tortilla soup, but the bbq sauce added so much more flavor and a hint of sweetness that otherwise wouldn't have been there. We ate our soup with some cheese quesadillas on the side and it was perfect. Try it! I know you'll love it. (Picture courtesy of Real Mom Kitchen)

  • 1-2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded into small pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn, frozen or canned
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
Stir all ingredients into a large saucepan and heat over medium-low until warm (about 25-30 minutes). This recipe would also work great in a crock pot with cooked or uncooked chicken on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 3-4. Top soup with sour cream, cheese, cilantro, tortilla chips or whatever else you have on hand.
