Chicken tortilla soup March 5, 2010

Filed under: Hobbies — Shannon @ 3:52 pm

It is no secret around my house that I was never allowed to make soup. I just could not get the hang of it. Then, my friend gave me a Cooking Light recipe for Chicken Corn Chowder. So yummy.

This morning, I had stuff leftover in my fridge from Sunday dinner (1/2 can enchilada sauce) and last nights dinner for Audrey’s birthday. She had wanted chicken tacos. I had leftover 1/3 cup diced chicken, 1 cup black beans. I used my ingredient recipe finder on allrecipes.com and found one for Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. I made major modifications:
Reduced chicken (no biggie)
Used leftover beans/diced pepper
I did not have diced tomatoes and green chilies – so I used my last can of Rotel
Homemade chicken stock for liquid instead of water
Added a pre-mixed 1/2 cup flour and 1 1/3 cup milk to cooker after about 5 hours cooking

So good. Here is the original recipe:

I can now officially make two soups! I feel awesome – I am learning!!! Please make and enjoy. This weekend I will be trying a new recipe also –
