Tortilla Soup

This was originally named "Spicy Chicken Soup" but to me it tasted so much like a tortilla soup that we added the cheese and tortilla chips on top and ate it that way. It makes a lot of soup, so I always make it when I am making dinner for someone. Plenty of soup for our own family and the family we are feeding.

2 quarts water
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 Tb dried parsley
1 Tb onion powder
5 cubes chicken bouillon
1 tsp garlic powder
3 Tb olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16 oz) jar chunky salsa
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
1 can corn
2 cans chili beans
1 (8 oz) sour cream
1 Tb chili powder

  • In large pot combine water, chicken, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, onion powder, and bouillon. Boil then reduce heat and simmer 1 hour or until chicken juices run clear. Remove and shred chicken and save broth.
  • In large pot, cook onion and garlic in oil until browned. Stir in salsa, diced tomatoes, soup, chili powder, corn, chili beans, sour cream, shredded chicken and 5 cups of broth. Simmer for 30 minutes.
