To kick things off today, we've got a quick chicken soup recipe with a Mexican twist. ProgressoTM recently announced that they're now serving white meat chicken with no antibiotics ever. They now have many varieties of chicken soups made with 100% antibiotic and hormone free white meat chicken breasts. Because quality is always in season!

We know our readers are busy and that quick and easy recipes are some of your favorites. Using canned soup as a base for a quick lunch or dinner is perfect when you're short on time. 

For this recipe, you start with a can of ProgressoTM Savory Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. By adding a few spices and some traditional toppings like jalapenos and avocados, it's easy to give this canned soup a fun Mexican twist that the whole family will love!
