Simple and delicious soup. I made with ground beef instead of chicken. Didn't have V8 so used whole jar of salsa and left out green chilies. Added a can of kidney beans. This was also good meatless. 2 cans chicken broth, 1 can beans, 1 can corn, 1 jar salsa, and a cup or 2 of cooked rice. Easy and delicious.
