Cheesy Southwestern Chicken Soup Recipe

It has been unusually cold in southern Kentucky. It snowed November 1, and we have had snow flurries the last few days. When it is cold outside I want a hearty bowl of soup. This cheesy southwestern chicken soup is a slightly different take on taco or nacho soup. The sweet corn gives it a slightly sweet taste, and it has added warmth from the spicy taco seasoning.

This recipe calls for 1.5 pounds of chicken, I used thighs but you can use breast meat. I garnished it with cilantro, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and some crushed tortilla chips. It has enough substance that it makes a hearty meal. Try to use sweet corn if you can, but regular yellow will suffice. I used sweet corn from our garden that we cut off the cob and froze. You can adjust the taco seasoning to taste. I have a four year old, so I have to make ours mild.
