Southwestern Vegetable Soup (Southwest Vegetable Soup)

Southwestern vegetable soup (less frequently given as “Southwest vegetable soup") appears to have been created in the Campbell’s Soup Company kitchens in 1966. The soup is a vegetable beef stock soup with chili powder.

In the 1990s, there was a Campbell’s Healthy Request Southwestern Vegetable Soup. The Chili’s restaurant chain offers a Southwestern Vegetable Soup.

Chili’s® Southwestern Vegetable Soup

6 cups chicken broth (Swanson is best)
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 cup water
1 cup canned dark red kidney beans, with liquid
1 cup frozen yellow cut corn
1 cup frozen cut green beans
1 4-ounce can diced green chilies
1/2 cup diced Spanish onion
1/2 cup tomato sauce
6 corn tortillas, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
dash garlic powder

Garnish
1 cup grated cheddar/jack cheese blend
1 cup crumbled corn tortilla chips

1. Combine all the soup ingredients in a large saucepan or soup pot over high heat. Be sure to mince the corn tortillas into small pieces with a sharp knife before adding them to the soup.
2. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the soup has thickened and tortilla pieces have mostly dissolved.
3. To serve soup ladle 1 1/2 cups into a bowl. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the grated cheddar/jack cheese blend over the top of the soup, and then a heaping tablespoon of crumbled corn tortilla chips over the cheese.
Makes 6 servings.

10 August 2005, Chicago (IL) Daily Herald, section 3, pg. 4, col. 4:
You’ll need a hot plate of microwave oven for most of the recipes, like Southwest Vegetable Soup made with cans of tomato soup and enchilada sauce along with some corn, green beans, kidney beans and salsa and crumbled ramen noodles.
