Spicy Chicken Tomato Soup

I needed a quick lunch yesterday and started to dig through my pantry. I came up with a large can of diced tomatoes, a can of chicken and a can of green chili… thus my spicy chicken tomato soup was invented. I love these simple, throw-together recipes and this one will quickly become a family staple. Serve it with a slice of homemade bread or some cheese quesadillas for a filling lunch or a simple dinner.

If you’re not a big fan of spicy things, add a few diced bell peppers or some chopped celery to the soup. Turn it into a vegetarian version by using tofu instead of chicken. This recipe will work well with any type of canned tomato product. Feel free to use whole tomatoes and break them up a bit as  you cook, or go with crushed tomatoes for a smoother soup.
