I was asked what my favorite recipe is on my anonymous questions post, so here it is, as promised!
Mama's Chicken Tortilla Soup
(I believe the original recipe is called Tex-Mex Tortilla Soup)
4 large chicken breasts, cooked then cubed or shredded
5 cups of water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 beef bouillon cube
1 14.5 oz can tomatoes (I prefer crushed)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 14.5oz can corn, drained
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp black pepper
Avocado chunks (optional)
Lime Wedges (optional)
First, chop up the onion and green pepper.
Trent pretty much HATES onions, so I did what my mom does, and pureed them in a blender.
Then sautéed them with a little bit of oil.
I added water, bouillon cubes, sautéed green pepper/onion and crushed tomatoes to a large pot (I only used half of that huge can of crushed tomatoes!)
Then added the chili powder, cumin and black pepper.
In the meantime, I cubed and cooked the chicken.
I added the corn and chicken to the big 'ol pot and brought to boil.
Then simmered, covered, for about 10 minutes.
Last, I added crushed tortilla chips and cheese on top!! (MUST DO!)
This recipe will not disappoint! Great for a chilly Sunday afternoon.
