Chicken Fajita Soup for a busy day

Yum
Chicken Fajita Soup for a busy day | Sometimes we need an extra hour or two in the day, but until that happens, this soup is a lifesaver! #recipe

There are some days where I just dread dinnertime. You know those days - you are going all day long and the last thing you want to do when you get home is slave over an hour to an hour and a half prepping and cooking dinner. Not to mention dirtying half your kitchen to get to clean up after dinner when you still just want to relax. This is where this soup comes in...

In the original recipe, canned chicken is used, but I went ahead and sauteed up some chicken really fast for it. You could even use leftover shredded chicken. Regardless, this soup comes together quickly and it's packed full of flavor!
