Soup Week Day 2: Tortilla Soup

Today was John's soup choice:  Tortilla Soup... it's YUMMY!  Here's our recipe:

Tortilla Soup
Chicken Breasts
Cumin, Garlic Powder, Chili Powder
White onion, diced
2 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cans of diced green chiles
Chicken broth (A LOT)
2 cans of black beans, drained
corn meal
package of corn tortillas cut into strips
shredded cheddar
tortilla strips

Here's what I did:

Threw a 3lb bag of chicken breasts in my slow cooker with cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder.

Sauteed onions in EVOO

Shredded cooked chicken with two forks.

Added chicken, tomatoes, chiles, broth and beans to BIG soup pot. Brought the soup to a boil and reduced the heat.

Added the corn meal to some warm water to dissolve it. Added that to the soup.  Simmered for a while.

Turned off the heat added the cut up tortillas. Let it set for about 15 minutes.

Garnish with cheddar cheese and tortilla strips.
