FSF from the Archives: Chicken Tortilla Soup

Here's a great soup from our archives. Perfect for that chilly winter night.  Mountain Man made this for me for my birthday last weekend. It's my favorite!

How To...Make Tortilla Crisps

We're nearing the end of 'soup season' which is a real bummer because of how easy soup is to whip up for dinner.

Today's meal, Chicken Tortilla Soup, is merely a drop in the pot and cook. Love those.

Ingredients: Tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, corn, green chilies, canned chicken, garlic salt, oregano, sugar and chili powder (and water, not pictured)

Open and dump all your canned items into the pot.

Add the water

and sugar and spices

Open the canned chicken, drain and then shred with two forks. Add to pot.

Bring the soup to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or so.

Top with crispy tortilla strips (coming Wednesday) and serve. Delicious!

I was looking for a great, quick, easy dinner tonight (it's been a crazy week) and I'm so glad I checked your site. I just put all this in a pot in 5 minutes. I used tomato powder instead of sauce and freeze dried tomatoes and chicken instead of canned. I'll heat it up just before dinner. I love getting dinner out of the way in the morning. Thanks!
