It's a cold, windy day, perfect for one of my favorite soups simmering in the crock pot.
Tortilla Soup. This recipe orginally came from my sis-in-law, Denise. Great tasting recipes, loving heart, and she's cute, too. We use this recipe a lot for groups. It is fun to assemble your own bowl.
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 oz. can of chopped green chilies
1 can beef broth
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 chicken breasts, cooked and diced, Grilled chicken adds lots of flavor!
1 ½ cups water
1 tsp steak sauce, (Heintz 57, A-1, etc.)
2 tsp worchestershire sauce
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
¼ tsp pepper
1 can stewed diced tomatoes
Corn tortillas, grated cheese, avocado, sour cream
Saute onion and garlic in veg oil in a large pan. Add all other ingredients through tomatoes and simmer. Just before serving, slice corn tortillas into 1/3 inch strips and fry in hot oil. Drain and salt slightly. Cut up avocado.
To serve: put a few strips of tortilla in bottom of bowl. Ladle soup into bowl. Top with avocado, grated cheese and sour cream.
The soup doubles and triples well. It is even better the second day. Freezes well.
I simmer in a crock pot most of the time.
