Stir in chicken, tomatoes, beans and corn. Add broth, Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce, Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub, salt and black pepper; stir to combine.

For Croutons:

Preheat oven to 400° degrees F. Place cornbread on a large baking sheet. Bake cornbread croutons in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
