One of my favorite soup recipes for fall - Tortilla Soup
I have made this soup for years. It's called Tortilla Soup - from 's the Fix-It and Forget It Cookbook (Good Publishers) and it's done in your crockpot!
Michael and I love it and both our daughters make it frequently and everyone they serve it to LOVES it.
4 chicken breast halves (cook, debone & shred chicken)
1 garlic clove, minced,
2 Tbsp. butter,
2 14 1/2 oz cans of chicken broth,
2 14 oz cans chopped stewed tomatoes,
1 cup salsa (mild, medium, or hot),
1/2 cup chopped cilantro,
1 Tbsp or more of ground cumin.
Melt the butter and add the minced garlic to it. Combine all the other ingredients in a slow cooker THEN add the sautéed garlic. Cover and cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.
Then shred or cube 8 oz of Monterey jack cheese - put this in your soup bowls. Ladle your soup over the cheese THEN sprinkle tortilla chips on the top and add a dollop of sour cream.
IT'S that easy and very yummy. I always double the recipe. It's great the first day and even better the second. And it freezes well— Enjoy! Let me know how you like it!
