Who doesn’t love a spicy meal served with icy cool margaritas? I know I do, and with this hot summer weather, there is nothing better than hosting a fiesta themed bash with Mexican Tortilla Soup and Frozen Margaritas! So when Swanson asked me to do a post featuring their scrumptious Swanson Chicken Broth and summer entertaining, I thought what a perfect opportunity. A fun filled fiesta, centered on a spicy Mexican soup and icy cool margaritas! So grab your friends, and your favorite party dress and celebrate summer!

I love soup, even in the summer. During these hot summer months when the weather is still rather warm, I like to serve lighter soups that have a clear broth base. This recipe comes together in about thirty minutes – making it perfect for those summer weeknights when the thought of cooking over a hot stove all day sounds so unappealing. This spicy Mexican Tortilla Soup is filled with chicken, corn, black beans, and topped with crispy tortilla strips, and sharp cheddar cheese.

Since I do a lot of cooking, I often buy things I use often in bulk that won’t go bad for awhile. Items such as flour, pasta, sugar, and Swanson Chicken Broth are all items I keep stocked in my pantry. A trip to Sam’s Club every once in awhile helps keep me stocked and prepared, so I never run out of items when cooking.

Did you know that Swanson Chicken Broth helps get dinner off to a quick and flavorful start? Sam’s Club carries the 32 oz. cartons in 3 packs – and just recently started carrying a 6 pack of 32 oz cartons! I say stock up, and use Swanson Chicken Broth to flavor everything from mashed potatoes to a variety of soups.
