I hope y’all aren’t “souped out” yet. 😉 I know I’ve been sharing a lot of soups lately, but I just can’t seem to help myself. I could probably eat soup multiple times a week and be perfectly happy. Plus my son actually requests it for dinner all the time! You’ve probably heard me mention that he is a picky eater, so it’s a big deal when he makes requests other than sandwiches or pizza.

This Chicken Fajita Soup was actually one of those ideas that came about as I was looking through my fridge, trying to decide what to make for dinner. I had some peppers that I needed to use up, plus some leftovers from my weekly rotisserie chicken. I mentioned my adoration for those chickens in my Shrimp Enchiladas recipe. 🙂

This soup was so easy to make, and it was ready FAST! Under 30 minutes fast, y’all. Plus, it tastes AMAZING! I added in some sharp cheddar to give it a nice cheesy finish, and there were no complaints coming from our dinner table!

Enjoy!
