A mildly spicy but creamy soup is full of goodness and flavour that the whole family will love.

Precooked rotisserie chicken adds to the flavour, though you can leave it out, add another can of beans and change the cream cheese to a vegetarian variety, and you will have a still delicious soup.

It's a lot of cans of this and that,

but when you haven't a lot of time to whip up a hearty meal,

this easy recipe is a true go-to.

Full of all sorts of goodies including red bell pepper, black beans, corn, onion, and tomatoes.

This soup is super quick to whip up.

Ready to eat in 25 minutes so a perfect meal for busy days end.

    I like the ingredients but it would have been helpful to have the amounts in ounces as well as grams. Also I'm not sure what "salsa beans" are. In our markets I see chili beans which are chili spiced pinto beans and occasionally you'll see chili black beans.
