Cleaning Out the Pantry = New Recipe

Hi all! Are you still joining us in the "Eat from the Pantry Challenge?" Well, if you are like me (and shopped the great sales anyway) your pantry needs to be cleaned out a little more... I wanted a nice, filling, easy lunch, so I adapted an old recipe and came up with this... Took less than 15 minutes and was supper yummy and healthy!

Tex Mex Soup (Easy & Hearty)

2 cans chicken broth
1 can mexicorn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 jar Pace picante sauce
1 "palmful" of dried minced onion
1 LG squeeze of lime juice
1 LG dash of Frank's hot sauce
Leftover cooked chicken breast, shredded (mine was in the freezer from freezer cooking day)

Combine all in a dutch oven; boil 'til hot, steamy, and chicken is heated through (about 7 minutes). Serve in bowls with corn chips on top and shredded cheese for garnish.

YUM-O! Protein, veggies, fiber, and flavor all in one bowl!!!

Also, we had this with an excellent salad prepared by the hubs...kudos to him. He rocks. :)
