I whipped this up in like two seconds as A) a snack because I am freezing and B) to use up some leftover rotisserie chicken.
I bought a smoked rotisserie chicken at the store, and that obviously lends a different flavor to the stock you make from it. I tried to think of soup ingredients that would complement that flavor (and that I had on hand). That’s where the red beans came in (also for color).
1 quart chicken stock, made from a smoked chicken carcass
1 cup or so diced smoked chicken meat
1 cup or so chopped mustard greens
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
red pepper flakes to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
1 can red beans
1 can white beans
1 tbsp olive oil
Heat oil in pan. Sautee onion and celery until soft.
Add stock and bring to a boil. Stir in chicken, greens and beans and simmer for 15 minutes or so.
Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes
