Smoked Chicken Taco Soup – Publix Flavor Excursion Savings + Giveaway

Now that school is back in session, getting dinner on the table quickly is a must. With band practice, ball games, and Wednesday evenings at church, there is only a small window most days to fit in a meal.

Of course, I want to feed my family nutritious meals so I’ve developed some meal time strategies for quick dinners. One strategy I use is to pre-cook food when I have the time. That may mean browning a bunch of ground turkey all at once and then freezing it in meal size containers or cooking extra chicken when I’m preparing a meal to use later in the week. Sometimes it means using convenience foods to make meal prep go a little faster like canned beans, Progresso Chicken Broth, Kraft Naturals Shredded Cheese, and Ro*Tel Tomatoes.

Pre-cooked ingredients and some convenience foods are what make my Smoked Chicken Taco Soup a great choice for busy nights. Best of all, you can buy some of the ingredients for this dish at a great price during the Publix Flavor Excursion Sale.

The Publix Flavor Excursion event is going on in-store between 9/10-9/23. Be sure to look out for new recipes and coupons on display during the event.

This Smoked Chicken Taco Soup is a quick and easy dinner.

This recipe is spicy! The avocado cools it off a bit but if you want it a little cooler you can top it with the optional sour cream or Greek yogurt. You could also make it with the mild version of Ro*Tel Tomatoes.

You can make this soup with any extra baked, grilled, or rotisserie chicken you have on hand. It will have a different flavor than if you used smoked chicken but it will still be tasty.
