You'll need this:
- If you like things spicy, sub out the can of diced tomatoes for a second can of Rotel.
- Yes, this soup has a can of beans in it. It sounds weird, but they thicken the soup and add protein. Trust me here.
Easy-Peasy Tortilla Soup
32 ounces chicken stock
10 ounce can Rotel
15 ounce can diced tomatoes
15 ounce can refried beans
1 cup frozen corn
2-3 cups cooked, shredded chicken or turkey
on the side:
tortilla chips (these are mandatory, otherwise, it’s not tortilla soup)
In a large stockpot, combine the stock, Rotel, tomatoes and beans. Heat over medium-high, stirring to break up the beans. When the soup comes to a simmer, add the corn and cook 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken and heat through.
Spoon into bowls and top with a spoonful of fresh pico, if desired. Serve with the sides.
Quick, easy, budget-friendly, delicious. There. Are you convinced?
