I'm telling you, this is a super easy make, it is delish and if you make it once, you'll make it again!!! Let me know if you try it, what you think...
:::Chicken Tortilla Soup:::
Yummy Mexican chicken soup that is super easy, just dump the ingredients in the crock pot and let it cook! It is delicious!
2-4 cans chicken stock (depending on desired thickness, personal preference)
2 cans crushed tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes (can use another can of crushed if you don't like chunks or vice versa)
1 can whole corn kernels
1 can black beans
1 small can green chilies (optional to taste)
1 14-oz can enchilada sauce
1 small onion (diced)
2-3 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
3 teaspoons cumin
3 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
1.5 lb. chicken (cut into pieces and cooked, I use breasts, but any meat will do, sometimes I use leftover meat from a whole chicken and just shred it up... whatever I have on hand really. Sometimes I even make it with beef!)
Optional Garnishes: sour cream, cheddar cheese, avocados and tortilla strips.
I just dump all of this in the slow-cooker and let it go for a few hours, sometimes I need to add a little extra chicken stock, depending on how thick it is...
For a great garnish, you could use store bought tortilla chips, but I like to make my own tortilla strips, and it is super easy! You need: 1 pkg. flour tortillas, and a few tablespoons of veg. oil. Just brush both sides of the tortillas with the veg. oil and cut into thin strips. Place strips on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes, turning them halfway through. They are crispy and delish in the soup!
