Chicken Tortilla Soup
There are about 5 million recipes out there for chicken tortilla but I figured I'd add mine to the mix. It's super easy to make and tastes awesome.
1 onion - chopped
1 red pepper - chopped
2 garlic cloves - minced
3 c. chicken broth
14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with chilis
10 oz package frozen corn - thawed
1 tsp. chili seasoning or any of the taco/fajita seasoning packets
1.5 c. cooked chicken breast - chopped - I use the precooked whole chickens and shred them
1/4 c. fresh cilantro - chopped
1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over med/high heat. Add onion, pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until softened and lightly browned - about 5 min.
2. Add the broth, tomatoes, corn and seasoning mix. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the chicken and cilantro. Reduce heat and simmer until heated through. Serve with crushed tortilla chips on top. Of course - always can be topped with cheese!
