Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Liz 78

This is the best and easiest tortilla soup recipe! I found it in the newspaper and have made it countless times since. If you don't have the pre-packaged beans and rice you can substitute a can of red beans and 1-2C. cooked instant rice; you'll also need to add some extra chili powder to taste.

A great little recipe...like most people on this site, I tweaked it for my purposes. Since I cook only for my husband and myself we have plenty of leftwovers. One of them was some shredded chicken I had frozen. Far less than the recipe called for. I combined the chicken stock plus some Miner's Chicken Base for exrra flavor and added Rotel tomatoes that added some extra heat. Turned out great. As it is a chilly day, greatly appreciated.
