Mexican Chicken and Corn Soup

Mexican Chicken and Corn Soup
My friend Betsey Reid made this delicious, beautiful and super easy Mexican soup. You blend or puree half of the corn and the bell pepper to give it a thicker texture, then stir in the remaining corn, the chicken and other ingredients to add some chunky, delicious bites to the soup. This is a delicious and easy soup that your kids will like! Betsey is a busy mom with 3 active and hungry boys and says they all really love this soup. We like to serve it with our Green Chile Cheese Bread, YUM!
