Spicy Chicken Noodle SOUP

It was hotter than heck today. 99 degrees, walking on the asphalt felt like you were walking in an oven. HOT!

One of the local markets had Campbell's Soup on sale. I stocked up on a few cans. Soup is good for the soul sometimes. I bought a potato one and a chicken noodle one. NO soup from a can tastes like a homemade soup. Sorry, sometimes close but not really.

This soup is one of my favorites. I actually love it. It is a twist on a traditional soup.

SPICY Chicken Noodle

One Rotisserie Chicken with broth in the container or 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
5 tablespoons of Better than Bouillon Chicken Broth base
5 cups Hot water
1 tsp. chopped jalapeno
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbs. Italian herbs
1 can Rotel Tomatoes and Green Chilis
Sliced carrots
sliced celery
chopped onion
1 bell pepper chopped (optional)
1/2 cup corn (optional)
1 pound pasta, (bowties, fusilli, penne, whatever you like) cooked put in a Ziploc and refrigerate.

Take out the crockpot. Set pot to low. Remove the chicken from the whole rotisserie chicken (use light and dark meat) and place in crockpot or put your shredded chicken in the crockpot. Combine bouillon and water, add to crockpot. Stir in jalapeno, garlic and Italian herbs. Add your tomatoes, chopped or sliced veggies. Cover pot and do what your need to do. The smell of this soup is amazing. If you are sick or have allergies, this soup will help clear your sinuses. It truly is a tasty soup. I crave it sometimes.

When ready to serve, pull the pasta from the fridge or from your drained pot if you prepare the pasta just before serving. Place some noodles in your bowl. Nuke them for 10 seconds if you want. Then ladle some of your Spicy Chicken Soup over your noodles. Sprinkle a little cheese over it if you would like to. Eat and Enjoy and if you are sick FEEL BETTER!

My all time favorite soup is chicken noodle, like the spicy addition to this soup. When I was young my grandma always said chicken soup and chili for any cold. If the soup doesn't do it the chili will.
THANKS!!! for the recipe. Geri
