I am a soup lover. It does not matter if it’s below zero or 90 degrees outside, I could eat soup every day of the year.
It also helps that it is one of the easiest things to prepare with the help of little hands, which I have no shortage of. My daycare kiddos love to make soup. This is one of our favorite recipes.
All the ingredients are basic, usually readily available in most households and not a lot of preparation is required thanks to canned ingredients.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 medium onion-diced
3 cloves of garlic-minced
1 TBSP. olive oil
2 TBSP. chili powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1- 28 oz. can organic diced stewed tomatoes with juice
1- 10 3/4 oz. can or box chicken broth
12 oz. water
1 green pepper-diced
1 cup frozen corn
1- 16 oz.can of black beans-rinsed
1-2 cups boned rotisserie chicken
Saute the onion, garlic and green pepper in the olive oil until they are tender.
Next, add all the remaining ingredients except the cooked chicken. Let this simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the cooked, boned chicken and simmer for another 10 minutes.
Serve either alone or topped with a dallop of sour cream. Warm corn bread or tortillas also accompany this soup well.
