We eat lots of home-made soups at our house during the cold, chilly winter months. One of my favorites is Chicken Tortilla Soup.... so I thought I'd share this recipe with you today.
The ingredients are.....
Chicken Tortilla Soup
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons flour
Three 14 oz. cans chicken broth
4 cups half & half
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup salsa
1 (15 oz.) can creamed corn
Rotisserie cooked chicken from the grocery store (chopped)
2 teaspoons cumin
1 packet dry fajita seasoning
2 teaspoons dried cilantro
8 oz. shredded Monterrey Cheddar cheese
Bag of tortilla chips (we like the hint of lime ones)
In a large pot over medium heat, saute the garlic and onion in the butter or margarine for 5 minutes. Add flour and stir well, cooking for 1 minute more. Add the broth and half & half. Bring to a boil and reduce to low heat.
Add the soup, salsa, corn, chicken, cumin, fajita seasoning, cilantro & half of the bag of cheese. Stir and continue to heat on low temp for 30 - 45 minutes.
