I haven't posted a recipe in months! I feel like such a slacker. But I've made a goal to do better so here's hoping I stick to it! We were in Arizona for a few weeks and loved every second of it! It was warm and sunny everyday! Now we are back in Albany and it feels like winter. Not really, but close. Also, I came home to a kitchen with new counter tops, sink and painted walls. Yep, my husband surprised me and I couldn't be happier about it! I walk into my kitchen and just smile because I love it so much.
Anyways, about the recipe. I make tortilla soup a lot and planned to make it yesterday. I didn't have all the ingredients for the recipe I usually use so I did some googling and came up with this one. It was easy and tasted so good!
Chicken Tortilla Soup
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 32oz box low sodium chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can green chiles (optional)
1/2 onion, chopped
3 Tbs. tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 to 4 corn tortillas, cut into small strips
Put all ingredients, except tortilla strips, in crockpot. Cook on low all day or high for 4 to 6 hours. When chicken is done, take out of crockpot and shred. Add back into soup. Add tortilla strips 30 minutes before serving. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream and chips.
