Spicy Chicken Vegetable Soup

Are you feeling like me? A month and a half of over eating and under exercising has you feeling slow and lethargic. Well I have the thing for that. This soup is so hearty and packed with veggies you won't miss the fat. And if you are missing the fat you can just add a little sour cream. It is so good we have it about twice a month at our house.

Spicy Chicken Vegetable Soup
1 qt Homemade Chicken Stock (you can use store bought but why?)
1 28 Oz can of crushed tomatoes
1/2 Cup diced onion and diced celery
3 Cloves of garlic
1 Cup each broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, potato
1 1/2 Cup raw kale
1/2 c Each frozen green beans and corn
2 T Cumin
1 T Smoked Paprika
1 T Chipotle chili powder (more if you dare)
3/4 lb Chicken breast meat cut small
Salt and pepper to taste
In your largest stock pot sweat the onion and celery until soft. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Poor in chicken stock and tomatoes. Add spices. Start adding veggies hardest first. Potatoes and carrots. Give them about a ten minute head start then add broccoli, cauliflower, green beans and corn. Let all of this simmer until vegetation is nearly done. Add kale and cook for another five minutes. Five minutes before dinner add chicken. Be careful not to over cook it.
I like to serve this with a dollop of sour cream and saltines. It is also very nice with a squeeze of lemon. I am not above adding a couple of shots of hot sauce at the table either. The sky is the limit with this soup.

My kids love this soup. They are a little weird though. Both of them could live on vegetables and be perfectly happy.

We'll have to try this...I've probably gained five pounds since Thanksgiving and am really mad with myself. Tomorrow is protein shakes and the gym.
