Santa Fe Chicken Fajita Soup

While I know the warmer temps of spring are now upon us, I had this delish soup recipe just sitting in my documents begging to be shared with the world. This Santa Fe Chicken Fajita Soup became an instant favorite of mine and my families. It was the perfect comfort food to keep warm with in the winter… but there’s no rule against cooking some up in the spring! :)

Santa Fe Chicken Fajita Soup -

I found this lovely soup on Pinterest and made it for dinner on a chilly evening last month. It was so easy and quick to whip up, full of flavor, and made the house smell yummy! With chunks of grilled chicken, green pepper, red onion, two types of cheeses, plus fajita seasoning for an extra punch; you have a pot of creamy, cheesy chicken soup with a Mexican twist! Top it off with some avocado and tortilla strips and devour! :)

2 packages Tyson's Grilled/Ready chicken breasts
30oz of chicken broth
1 small green pepper
1 large red onion
16oz package of Velvetta Cheese
1 package Taco Bell Fajita Seasoning Mix
1 package of cream cheese

First, dice up your green pepper and red onion. Toss those in a skillet with some olive oil. Turn the heat on high to caramelize. Add a couple dashes of garlic powder for flavor.

In the meantime, cube up the Velvetta and soften the cream cheese.

When the onions/peppers are done, add the Velvetta, cream cheese, and chicken broth to the pan. Make sure to turn the heat down to medium-low or the cheese will burn just as fast as it melts

Once your mixture is smooth, add the Tyson's chicken {cubed} and the fajita seasoning. Mix thoroughly and allow to simmer. Then enjoy! (Serves 4-5)
