originally from the MizFrogsPad web site:

1 can (13 ounces) premium chunk chicken breast in water*
1 can Rotel (to your tasteŚmild, original, or extra hot)
2 cans of fat free chicken broth
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drains
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic from jar

In a large (about 3-quart) pot, combine all ingredients. Bring to boil, and simmer 20 to 30 minutes, until flavors are blended and soup thickens slightly.

If desired, serve topped with shredded low fat cheese of choice, sliced green onions, or a dollop of fat free sour cream.

*If you prefer, instead of canned chicken, use 1 or 2 chicken breast halves, diced and browned using cooking spray.

Note from original poster: I use original Rotel and add 1/4 teaspoon Litehouse freeze-dried chili pepper.

Note from Barbara: I use Rotel bold. I would have posted this sooner but I thought I got it from here!

This soup is WONDERFUL!!! My DH and I have a favorite Mexican restaurant that we used to get huge stuffed burritos...well this soup tastes just like the stuffing of the burrito. It is a great substitute!!! Thanks so much.

What is Rotel????

Rotel is a brand of diced tomatoes that has diced chilis in it as well as spices. Everyone variety that I have seen is okay on South Beach. They have spices mixed in and one variety has Lime and Cilantro. For the soup, I like the Bold but choose what you like based on the heat.
