Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup

IMG_0489With three littles (and one on the way) running around, my wife is always trying to find recipes that are fast but also wholesome. This is definitely one we love. This is a recipe we make often in the winter. It is great way to warm up on a cold night. It is very easy and inexpensive. We have also used leftover turkey and it is just as good. Hope you enjoy.


You need:

32 oz chicken stock
2 cans of rotel, undrained
A whole rotisserie chicken, shredded  (left over chicken or cooked chicken or even turkey works)
1 garlic clove (or 1/2t minced garlic)
1/4 t ground cummin
1/4 t chili powder

Mix all that together and bring to a simmer in a heavy pot.

Garnishes served with each bowl:

Lime wedge to be squeezed into soup
Shredded cheese
Tortilla chips
Fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
