Gluten-Free Rotisserie Chicken and Black Bean Soup Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Pilot made this tasty gluten-free rotisserie chicken and black bean soup recipe the other night and I wanted to share it with you.

To speed up the prep time, you might want to de-bone the rotisserie chicken ahead of time.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock, hot
  • 1 1/2 cups water, hot
  • 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 8-ounce can corn, drained (you can use a cup of frozen corn, thawed, instead)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 large avocado, cubed

In a large, heavy pot over medium-high, heat the oil.

Add the onion, celery and carrots and cook until starting to get tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, then stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the stock, water, beans, corn and chicken and bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Top soup with avocado. (If you’re tempted to skip the avocado, I suggest you don’t. To me, it really enhanced the flavor of the soup.)
