Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup
The other night as I was trying to figure out something to make for supper and clean out my fridge and freezer at the same time I found a recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup. It was a quick and easy solution to get rid of my leftovers and clean out the freezer at the same time! Add your favorites and  make it as mild or spicy as you like.

Here's what you need:
  • 3-4 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I had mine in the freezer and they were shredded already)
  • 3 cups water or chicken stock
  • 1-2 cups salsa
  • V8 juice I used about 32 oz
  • corn
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • garlic
  • optional: you can also use a taco seasoning packet if you need something quicker than adding separate seasonings
  • black beans, rinsed, (I actually forgot to add these and it still tasted yummy!)
  • Tortilla chips
  • shredded cheese
This is one of those recipes I taste along the way, then you can add more or less seasoning, salsa, veggies or whatever you want.  Put in all in a large pot and cook over medium heat about 30 minutes until it's all heated through and tastes "just right."  Then top it with shredded cheese and crunched up tortilla chips. You could even add some sour cream if you like.
