3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons butter, unsalted
2 tablespoons flour
35 oz. chicken broth (fat free & low sodium)
4 cups Fat Free Half & Half
1 cup salsa, mild (cup)
15 oz Cream Style Sweet Corn

2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1 optional [9160] fl+oz fl+oz

Recipe Directions for Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

  1. In an extra large pot over medium heat, sauté garlic in butter for 5 minutes. Gradually add flour, stirring well. Cook for 1 minute more. Add the broth and half-and-half. Bring to a boil over med-high heat, stirring frequently. This may take 5+ minutes.

  2. Reduce heat to med-low and add all the rest of the ingredients. Stir and continue heating for 15 minutes.

  3. Crumble desired amount of tortilla chips into individual bowls. Sprinkle with cheese and ladle in the soup. Top each bowl with additional crumbled chips and shredded cheese. Enjoy!

  4. Tip:

  5. Cook the chicken the day before by wrapping each individual breast in foil (like a packet), place in a 9x13 pan and bake for 30-35 min in a 350 degree oven, until the center is cooked. This will give you very tender chicken for this soup and makes it come together very quickly.
