I'd call this Six Can Soup, really.
Doesn't that sound more fun?
I think so!
My friend, Kim, is a great cook!
I always love to have dinner with her for two reasons.
- She makes it look "souper" easy (a little funny since she gave me the soup recipe!)
- It always tastes amazing.
Well, I know that's not exactly true, because then she'd be a Saint.
She is a Saint, but not that kind of Saint!
But when things do bother her, she doesn't show it like I do!
She's raising three great boys and a husband
and they have a dog named Chief.
"Chief!" That tells you Chief isn't a tea cup poodle -- Chief is big enough to count as one of the boys.
But I didn't include him!
Why did I tell you all of this?
Because when Kim cooks, it has to please!
She gave me this recipe almost a year ago.
Or at least when the weather was cooler and we were freezing together at the baseball fields.
I couldn't forget it -- it was so easy!
Put these ingredients on your next grocery list and you'll be wishin' you knew Kim too!
Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 family size can Chicken and Rice soup
1 can tomatoes with green chilies
1 can ranch style beans
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of corn
1 can chicken*
see my note**
Place everything in a large sauce pan and heat thoroughly.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and a squeeze of lime, if you desire.
I served it with cornbread the first night and cheese quesadillas the second!
*I didn't buy canned chicken because I had cooked chicken breasts at home that I shredded and put in the soup.
**We like black beans a whole lot! So I added a drained can to the soup mix. It was great!
