In winter we often take this idea and use a supermarket rotisserie chicken or leftovers from it to make this delicious soup. Just because it’s summer though, doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a wholesome, nutritious, soul warming soup.

Got leftover chicken from your weekend barbecue or weekday grilled chicken dinner? If you do, you are well on your way to enjoying this delicious soup.

The char on the barbecue chicken imparts great smoky flavor to the soup. Also, the barbecue sauce brings a slight sweetness that works very well.

Be sure to rinse canned black beans well before using them.

Leftovers to the rescue

Even in the summer we need a good leftover rescue recipe or two. This one is a terrific way to stretch another meal from the remains of a yummy barbecue meal.
