Karen's Easy Tortilla Soup

Soups are such a great one pot.  They are fairly easy to make, they are filling, and they are always great on a cold day.  This is a great simple recipe that came from my friend Karen.  I call it Karen's Easy Tortilla Soup.  This recipe has evolved a little over the years, and it is one that my family loves.  My hope is that you will also.

Karen's Easy Tortilla Soup 


2 14 oz cans Lime Cilantro Diced Tomatoes
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can corn drained
1 28 oz can hominy drained
1 14 oz can black beans drained
1 cup mild salsa
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
1 32 oz box chicken broth ( I use low sodium fat free)
1 rotisserie chicken ( meat taken off the bones and cut into bite sized pieces, or you can put 6 chicken breasts in a dutch oven and season them with seasoned salt and garlic powder. Add enough water to cover and bake at 350 for 2 hour.  Cut breasts into bite sized pieces.)  You can use the liquid in your both.
Tortilla Chips
grated cheddar cheese


Put all ingredients into a large dutch oven and cook for 2 hours. 

Serve with tortilla chips and grated cheddar cheese

Serves 6 

This is a delicious and easy recipe.  I hope that you like it as much as we do.  Let me know what you think.  I always love hearing from you.
