Re: Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe???

Here is mine...

Chicken tortilla soup
1 pound chicken cooked and shredded
Salt and pepper
1/2 lb chorizo (I like the raw ground kind over the sausage kind)
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
6 small red potatoes, cubed
1 (15-ounce) can fire roasted chopped tomatoes
1 (15-ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 quart chicken stock
1 sack red or blue corn tortilla chips
2 cups shredded pepper jack or smoked Cheddar
Preheat medium soup pot over medium-high heat.
Cook chicken till tender and set on plate to cool, drain broth into seperate pan (I like to cook mine for a couple hours to get it nice and tender, then I can make my own broth instead of using canned). While waiting for cooked chicken to cool, brown chorizo. Add onions,garlic, peppers after chorizo is browned, cook till tender. Add tomatoes, beans, and potatoes to chorizo/veggie mix. Add shredded chicken and broth back to pan. Simmer till flavors combine. Serve with homemade tortilla strips or bagged tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese. Add hot sauce if it floats your boat.
