One of our favorite meals during the winter season is soup! Tortilla soup tops our list. It is healthy, simple to put together in the crock pot, and it is oh so yummy! If you'd like to make it, here's my recipe. Please let me know if you decide to give it a try!
You will need:
1 jar of mild salsa (24 oz)
1 can of corn, drained
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1.5 lbs of uncooked chicken breasts (it can even still be frozen)
3-4 cups of chicken broth
Place salsa, corn, beans, and chicken in a medium sized crock pot. If your chicken is frozen, turn the crock pot on high for 3 hours. If your chicken was not frozen, turn the crock pot on low for three hours. Stir, and allow to cook for another hour. Using a fork, poke around inside the crock pot and break apart the chicken into bite size pieces. Add the chicken broth and cook for thirty more minutes. Serve over tortilla chips and top with sour cream and shredded cheese. Sometimes I add a little cilantro on top too, if I have any. Yummy! (This soup always tastes even better the next day! Left overs are the best, aren't they?) Here is a picture since tortilla soup was our dinner last night...
