Chicken Tortilla Soup - Because it's fall, silly.

It is soup weather, people.


Of course, it would be slightly better if it rained.  You know, like it did that one day in May.


Get yourself to Kroger and buy these ingredients.

1 onion, diced
3 ribs of celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 teaspoon of olive oil

1 can chicken broth
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes with chopped green chilies (like Rotel)
 1 can fiesta corn - you know, the kind with red pepper bits in it
1 cup cooked diced chicken.  You can a) cook and dice your own, b) use a rotisserie chicken or c) use a pack of Oscar Meyer Carving Board Rotisserie Chicken.  I got a good deal on about a million packages of this, and I have used it in everything.  Trust me.  It's good.
2 -3 cups of water
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend

Saute the first four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until the onions are translucent.

Then - and here's the complicated part, so pay attention - put everything in a crockpot on low for several hours.  Anywhere between three hours and forever ought to do it.

Serve it with crushed tortilla chips on top.

  1. Can I tell you how crushed I am that you didn't use MY tortilla soup recipe (that I stole from a co-worker)??

    Still love you anyway.
