King's Ranch Chicken Soup

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy a rich, cheesy soup, and this one fits the bill. It is a soup version of the popular King’s Ranch Chicken Casserole that is Ro*Tel’s signature dish.

This can be made in less than 30 minutes if you use rotisserie chicken, but I like to bake my own. I actually use several dashes of my favorite Penzey’s seasonings to the chicken to make it super flavorful before adding to the soup. I use Penzey’s Fajita Seasoning and Arizona Seasoning to season chicken that will be used for any Tex-Mex dish.

I’d love to hear from you if you try this. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blesssed, and stay savvy!!!
