Chicken Taco Soup


  • 1/2 cup store-bought mild green salsa

  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or chopped

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock

  • 1/2 cup whole grain tortilla chips, crushed

  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


To a medium size saucepot, add the salsa verde and chicken. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the chicken stock.

Heat the soup through over medium heat and transfer to a thermos. Pack chips and cheese in sealable plastic bags.

At lunchtime, kids can pile up a few chips and cheese in the thermos top and pour soup over the top to eat. Yum-o! This is one of many "Yum-o!" recipes – it's good and good for you. To find out more about Yum-o!, Rachael's nonprofit organization, go to
