Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

We have been married for almost 11 months now and I had never made a soup until today. Can you believe it? So today in the morning, I logged in to www.allrecipes.com and started looking for a chicken soup recipe. They have many recipes but there was one in particular that caught my eye (or my tummy). Its a chicken tortilla soup and it is delicious. Here is the recipe if you want to try it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
4 Servings


* 1/2 pound shredded, cooked chicken
* (15 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
* (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
* 1/2 medium onion, chopped
* (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1 cup water
* (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
* 1/2 teaspoon cumin
* 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
* 1/2 bay leaf
* (10 ounce) package frozen corn
* 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
* 3-1/2 corn tortillas
* vegetable oil


1. Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into a slow cooker. Pour in water and chicken broth, and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Stir in corn and cilantro. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
3. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips, then spread on a baking sheet.
4. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, sprinkle tortilla strips over soup.

I spent less than $8 for the ingredients. Its very simple and delicious!
I dare you to try it! :)
