Chicken Fajita Soup

All the flavor of a fajita in a warm, comforting bowl of soup.

Sometimes our favorite flavors have to transition from a summer meal to a fall/winter meal.  We didn’t have any tomatoes this year (not even one ~ so disappointing!) but the sweet bell peppers are gorgeous!  Since our favorite Beef and Chicken Fajitas have worn out their welcome (according to our 6yo), I decided to do a little switcheroo and adapt a recipe from Taste of Home magazine.

*** This soup is not terribly spicy, which is perfect for the kids and me, but my husband adds a bit of cayenne pepper for a little zing.

*** Leftovers are fabulous, but the soup does thicken as it sits in the fridge.  Feel free to add more chicken broth to thin it out a bit.

On this week’s agenda… chopping, freezing, and bagging bell peppers for winter soups and omelets!  What do you like to make with bell peppers?

    We have had an abundance of peppers in our CSA box this year. I love fajitas, but we just can’t eat them fast enough! I also love to saute peppers and onions together with some sausage – either whole or sliced long-ways for sandwiches or chopped up and served on top of pasta. DELICIOUS!

  3. Yummy Amy! I can’t wait to try it! 🙂

  4. This looks so good, Amy! It’s going straight onto my menu for next week.

  5. Yum this soup looks delicious!! Thanks for linking up the sticky chicken, I just refreshed the pictures on that post, you should stop by for a look.

    As far as bells, I just stick them in every single thing i make, but again we are big fans. Eggs, soups, salads, sauces, pasta even. Or like others have said freezing is a great option.

  6. This looks delicious! I pinned it so I could make it soon. Yum!

  7. Do you think you could make it in the crock pot?

  8. We make stuffed bell peppers. If I I need to freeze them I dice some for spaghetti sauce, chili, taco meat. or I slice them or chunk them for stir fry or fajitas.
