It's hard to believe that summer is almost over. I feel like we were cheated this year, it was so hot we couldn't enjoy summer at all. Hopefully the fall will be more normal.
I have been wanting to post this recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup for a while. It is so good and so easy to make. So here it is! Enjoy!
1 - Rotisserie Chicken, deboned or 1 lb chicken breasts strips
4 - Cups Chicken Broth
1 - 28 oz. can Green Chiles shredded
1 - 16 oz. can Diced Tomatoes
1 - onion, diced
1 to 2 jalapenos, diced
Garnishments - chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, diced green onion, cheese and tortilla chips
In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add diced onion, diced jalapeno and chicken strips (unless you use the rotisserie chicken, then wait to add). Cook until the chicken is browned. Add chicken broth, green chiles, canned tomatoes and salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. If you use the rotisserie chicken add that now too. Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.
To serve: Crunch up some tortilla chips in the bottom of a bowl, ladle the soup over the torilla chips. Garnish with the avocado, green onion, cheese and cilantro.
There you go, Chicken Tortilla Soup! Happy eating!
