Tortilla Soup

I'm getting closer to the perfect Tortilla Soup. I might have hit the bull's eye tonight. I forgot to picture the two chicken breasts and two boxes of Chicken Broth that I used (1 quart each).

2 Quarts Chicken Broth

2 chicken breasts, cubed, then shredded after cooked

16 0z diced tomatoes

1 can black beans

1 can corn

1 tsp chipolte chili pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp cumin

1-2 tsp Chili powder

1 tbsp garlic powder

salt, to taste

Place cubed, raw chicken in chicken broth and cook. While chicken is cooking, add spices. When chicken is cooked, put cubes in food processor and pulse until shredded. Add chicken back to broth. Add beans, tomatoes and corn. Cook until boiling. Add lime to taste. Top with homemade tortilla strips.

Homemade Tortilla Strips

4 Guerrero "uncooked" tortillas

equal amounts: cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder

Salt, to taste

Spray oil

Place tortillas on cookie sheet and spray with oil. Sprinkle spices and salt on tortillas. Use pizza cutter and cut into strips. Broil on low for 3 minutes or until puffed.

I made tortilla soup tonight, too! Though my recipe was quite a bit different than yours (it started with a can of green enchilada sauce). But it sure was good. Sounds like yours was delicious, as well. :)
