chicken tortilla soup

I wasn’t even going to post this recipe, but then I had the leftovers for lunch and decided that it was so yummy I should share. So here’s the recipe. It’s sort of ghetto, but it works.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chili beans
2 cans chicken broth (about 3 1/2 cups)
1 can diced green chiles
1 T taco seasoning
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
6 slices American cheese
tortilla chips (store bought, or make your own)

Heat tomatoes, beans, broth, chiles, and seasoning until simmering. Add chicken and cheese, and stir until cheese is melted. Let soup reduce a little, until slightly thickened (if it doesn’t reduce or you’re in a hurry, you can add a teaspoon of cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken the soup). Ladle into bowls and garnish with chips.
