Kim's Chicken Tortilla Soup

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.
  1. She makes it look "souper" easy (a little funny since she gave me the soup recipe!)
  2. It always tastes amazing.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, bothers her!

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!
