Simple Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe
I love the idea of this recipe.
My friend says that this soup is kind of like a marriage of the most popular soup and the most popular trends in food. I would have to agree because I like both ideas a lot.
People have loved their chicken soup for years.
Who doesn’t love a bowl of chicken soup?
Moms, like my mom, have served this to us for most anything that seems to ail us. This is really a popular thing to serve.
I like to make this recipe as easy to make as possible.
Luckily, there are cheats for just about everything these days. This is no exception.
While grandmothers took on the painstaking task of making soup from scratch, we have options, such as store-bought broth, these days.
There is another great cheat as well.
We can also use chicken strips from a freezer bag if we do not want to cut up the breasts. Thus, we can enjoy the efficiency of this recipe if we want to.
I serve this with chips and salsa on this side.
Rather than making this recipe as directed, feel free to add some of the optional items.
OPTIONAL ITEMS that you may use include:
- Corn kernels- 1 cup
- Hominy (white) 1 cup
- Black beans- rinsed/drained – 1 cu
- p Peppers- your choice, such a jalapenos,
- Seasonings to taste, such as pepper.
- Cilantro- chipped for an accent on top
I always have cilantro on hand. Consequently, cilantro is my choice of optional ingredients to add. However, I also like to add additional seasonings.
This soup can be a meal in itself. You can also enjoy this as part of a meal.
