Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup is a great meal to use for freezer cooking. It is a very simple recipe, cost efficient, and it only takes about two peices of chicken per copy. If you have an Aldi nearby you can buy a bag of chicken (6 pcs) for around $6!! That's enough chicken for three copies of this recipe!

This is a family favorite my husband and children beg me to make!

Ingredients:


1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 large onion finely chopped
1 large tomato finely chopped
2 Cups cooked chicken, cut thin
4 cups chicken broth
1 bag of frozen corn
2 Tablespoons finely chopped parsely
Dash of tabasco (optional)
1 lime
6 oz tortilla chips
salt and pepper

Here's what you do:
Chop onion and tomato, set aside. Cut lime into 4 pieces, set aside. In a large pot, heat oil over low heat, add onion and pinch of salt and pepper, cook stirring for 5 minutes, add tomato, parsely and cooked corn, cook 2 min. stirring, add tabasco and chicken cook 1 min. add juice from lime, limeshells, and broth, bring to boil, reduce heat, let simmer 5 min over medium heat. Remove lime shells, (squeeze all juice out) serve hot over tortilla chips,or how you desire.

You can also top this soup off with sour cream and shredded cheddar.
