If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I made soup the other morning. This stew is easy to make. It’s hearty, filling, and is a great way to incorporate veggies into your diet without much fuss.
Oh, and it’s great with crunched-up tortilla chips and cheese on top!
Let’s get into it!
Chicken Fajita Stew
- 8-10 cups of chicken stock (I made my own, but you can use canned chicken stock or broth)
- 1 T. Butter
- 2 Onions, diced
- 2 Bell peppers, chopped
- 2 ribs of Celery, diced
- The kernels from 2 ears of corn (about 2-ish cups). You can also use frozen or canned (no salt added)
- 2 Yellow Italian Squash, cut into slices and then quartered
- 2 Tomatoes, diced
- 1 can of heirloom beans
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- Roughly 3 cups of chopped rotisserie chicken
- 1T. each: cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large stock pot, melt butter over medium heat and add onions, bell peppers, and celery. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are translucent.
- Add in stock and remaining ingredients. Simmer over medium/low heat for 30-45 minutes, or longer if you like.
- Serve with quesadillas or top your soup with tortilla chips and shredded/crumbled cheese.
