A 'clear-your-sinuses' soup, served with packaged tortilla chips--almost like a hot salsa.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Tortilla Soup

12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and chopped (about three breasts--weight after cooking)
6 ounces carrots, finely grated (about one cup)
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cups water
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or less to taste)
1 tsp oregano
2 tbsp cayenne pepper sauce
1 cup salsa
56 oz crushed tomatoes
15 1/2 oz red kidney beans, drained, rinsed and pureed
2 cans creamed corn
15 1/2 oz black beans, drained and rinsed

Recipe Directions for Chicken Tortilla Soup

  1. Cook three boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cool, chop or shred, and set aside.

  2. Finely grate carrots and chop celery. Saute in 2 Tbsp olive oil in a stock pot, just long enough to justify adding the oil. ;)

  3. Add water and seasonings. Simmer over medium heat until veggies are tender.

  4. Add salsa, tomatoes, pureed beans, corn, and black beans. Simmer for at least half an hour, stirring occasionally.

  5. Add chopped chicken.

  6. Serve with tortilla chips to help cool the burn.

  7. Freezes well, and may also be made with leftover holiday turkey.
