  • ½ white onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 can (10 ounce) mild diced tomatoes with green chilies (do not drain)
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick Organics Fajita Seasoning Mix from 1 ounce package
  • cups low sodium chicken broth
  • ¾ cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 cups cooked shredded rotisserie chicken I found already shredded in the deli section of my grocery store
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice juice from about 1 lime

Garnish:

  • Tortilla strips
  • Avocado
  • Cilantro
  • Shredded cheese

Instructions

  • In a large pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add onion and peppers. Saute until slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add in garlic, diced tomatoes, black beans, McCormick Organics Fajita Seasoning Mix, chicken broth, and chicken. Stir to combine. Bring to a light boil, then cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add uncooked rice, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper, cilantro and lime juice.
  • Serve immediately and top with tortilla strips, avocado, cilantro, or cheese, if desired.

Notes

Rice will absorb most of the liquid when added to the soup, so it may be easier to add rice with each serving, if needed.
