Mexican Chicken Soup

Mexican Chicken Soup

"Soups to Savor: Beans add nutrients and healthy, filler fiber ... and they're cheap" by Michael Hastings. Beans: lentils, pintos, black, kidney, cannellini, etc. A favorite winter soup recipe from Melissa Clayton of Kernersville, Mexican chicken soup uses kidney and black beans. Taste and simplicity: lots of color and flavor. Recipe yields 6 to 8 servings. Winston-Salem Journal: January 16, 2013.
