..Chicken Tortilla Soup

DSC_2414

This constant snow has had me in soup mode. I also am trying to eat a bit healthier these days so this recipe is sans the actual tortillas. Obviously you can add them but it was really good all on its own. I had never made this soup before so I'm sure you could find a more legit recipe somewhere on the internet, as I just dropped items I thought went into it into my cart at the grocery store and just rolled the dice, but it's super easy and tasty.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon EVOO
1 roasted chicken
1 small onion
1 can white corn
1 can black beans
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
8 cups chicken stock
garlic salt, pepper, & cumin
Optional: Avocado, shredded Mexican blend cheese, sour cream

In a large pot add a little EVOO around the bottom and throw in your diced up onions and peppers. season them with a little garlic salt, pepper, and cumin. After about five minutes of them in there on their own add in the corn, beans, and tomatoes. While that is blending in the pot remove all the meat from your roasted chicken and chop into bite sizes. Add that to the pot. Season a bit more and then add in the chicken stock. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes and you are ready to garnish and serve.
