chicken taco soup

made with our dana's all purpose seasoning

This soup recipe is SO GOOD! It is perfect to make on a cool fall evening or for game day. Our Dana's All Purpose Seasoning shines in the spotlight of this recipe and is our spice of the month. Named after the matriarch of our tea family, Dana, this spice captures our love of mom's cooking!

Dana's All Purpose Seasoning is made with sea salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic and New Mexican chile.

Customer Review from Dana:

"I admit, I only bought this one because my name is “Dana”, but the seasoning is amazing! Not too overpowering, but flavorful enough to make any dish stand out. And also not overly salted."


(makes about 4 big bowls)

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 (10 fluid ounce) cans Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies with juices
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 4-5 tsp. Dana’s All Purpose Seasoning, or more if you like
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can corn drained
  • 1 (14 fluid ounce) can black beans drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) block of cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups cooked/rotisserie chicken shredded
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • toppings (optional): shredded cheese, avocado, cilantro, tortilla strips, etc.


  • Take the cream cheese out of the fridge at least an hour ahead of time to let it soften up, or microwave it for 20-30 seconds until it's soft.
  • Add the oil and onion to a soup pot and sauté over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add all the remaining soup ingredients to the pot except for the cream cheese, chicken and seasonings.
  • Increase the heat to high and bring the soup to a boil. Turn down the heat until it simmers gently (uncovered) for 5 minutes. While the soup cooks, prep your toppings.
  • Cut the cream cheese into smaller pieces and add it to the soup. Let it melt in (you may have to stir it a fair bit until it's fully incorporated).
  • Stir in the chicken and cook for another 5-7 minutes or so until it's warmed through.
  • Season the soup with Dana's, salt and pepper and serve with toppings as desired.
