I finally wandered my way over to this board & thought I'd share one of my favorites. I took from about 6 recipes I had found and smooshed them together using only the parts I liked...enjoy! note: I never measure when I make it, but these are very close.


this pic used chopped chicken instead of shredded - I really preferred the shredded

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast halves without skin, cooked & shredded
                    <easier to shred if boil it in veggie broth>
1 medium onion, chopped
1 whole green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups low sodium chicken or veggie broth
1 cup salsa
2 14-oz cans diced tomato, opt. with green chiles, undrained -or fresh equivalent-
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup light sour cream - optional
1/4 cup cheddar cheese - optional
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2-3 tortillas

1. Cook chicken - either roast, bake or poach - your choice. then shred

2. Preheat oven to 350*.

3. Cut each tortilla in half & cut those halves into 1/4-inch strips. Arrange tortilla strips in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring after 3 minutes. Cool completely.

4. In large saucepan heat oil over med-hi heat.

5. Add onion, green pepper & garlic. Saute until soft, about 3 minutes.

6. Stir in tomatoes, chicken broth, salsa, chili powder, basil, oregano, cumin & pepper and bring to a boil.

7. Stir in chicken. Cover & simmer 30 minutes or longer. If soup seems too thick add more broth.

8. Stir tortilla strips into soup.  Serve hot.

9. Top each serving with 1T cheese, cilantro & 1T sour cream (optional)

MMMMMMMMMMMMM!

I finally had a chance to make it.  I had to cut some corners.  I forgot the recipe at home and I could not call my hubby because he was putting our son down for a nap - never disturb nap time!!!!  Smiley

In our ready made section of the grocery store, they sell the rotisserie chickens and I used one of those delicious birds! I wanted to make my own salsa but I could not. I forgot to get canned tomatoes so I had to use my fresh ones.  I couldn't get myself to pay $4.99 for one stinkin' medium red pepper.  Isn't that ridiculous???  I ended up using my jalapeno that was supposed to be for my salsa. I forgot the basil, and we decided sour cream wasn't needed.  This is coming from a self proclaimed sour cream junkie!  I used 5 cans of broth instead of 3 for a soupier consistentcy.

Very delly-ish-us!  Thank you for the recipe!

I am not sure how this craftster thing works and I am not sure how/if I can post a picture.  I don't even know how to start a topic!!!  (((craftster virgin)))

Glad you liked it! I play around with recipes based on budget and absentmindedness ALL the time...that's how I find new recipes  Grin

To post a pic and not a thumbnail you need to have posted 10 times <you're almost there!>
...here's an info link: <you can upload pics anytime & have a link on the post> ... like this  Wink
http://www.craftster.org/craftsterguide.html#anchor5b
Then you roll over to "My Craftster" up top and select "My Picture Hosting" ... instructions from there.

To start a topic .. form the top board (ex.this one is "recipes and cooking tips) there is a tab up top of the chart that says "new topic".

Thank you for all of your help!  I will have to come up with a good recipe and share with you.  Are you a sweets or savory person?
