When getting the canned ingredients ready, be sure to drain the corn and black beans. Some prefer to also rinse the black beans before adding them to the pot. Add all the ingredients together and bring to a boil. Then simmer the soup on low for 10-15 minutes.

Tips, Tricks, and Swaps for 6 Can Soup

While the best part about this soup is that it’s such an easy recipe, I also love how customizable it is.

  • Drain beans – If you drain the black beans, you’ll get a lighter colored and more golden soup (i obviously didn’t do this step on this round-so its not a deal breaker) .
  • Heat – If you want to spice up your soup, add some extra green chilies, crushed red pepper flakes, chili powder, cayenne pepper, or even just some extra black pepper. You can also use a store-bought packet of taco seasoning or homemade taco seasoning.
  • Ease – To make it even easier, try making this soup in a slow cooker.
  • Beans – For even more fiber, try adding a mix of beans. Pinto beans and kidney beans are great additions.
  • Chicken – If you have leftover chicken breast or rotisserie chicken this is a great way to use it up. Just substitute it for the canned chicken.
  • Cheese – In addition to your other favorite toppings, try sprinkling some Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese on top of the soup.
  • Citrus – Adding a little citrus to soup can brighten it and bring out the flavors. Try serving lime wedges alongside this one.
  • Protein – If you don’t have chicken handy, try using ground beef, ground turkey, sausage, or your favorite plant-based alternative.
  • Broth – For less salt, try using a low-sodium chicken broth. For a different flavor, use beef broth.
  • Sauce – To make it a little thicker or for more tomato flavor, try adding tomato sauce or tomato paste. For a little extra kick, you can add red enchilada sauce or green enchilada sauce.
  • Vegetarian – If you want to make this soup vegetarian, omit the chicken and swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth. Make it a vegetable soup by adding in your favorite veggies.
