Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup
8 servings

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped fine
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1 32 ounce box chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies, mild
1 can petite diced tomatoes
chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
colby cheese, grated
monterrey jack cheese, grated
sour cream
tabasco sauce
1 avocado, sliced
tortilla chips, crushed

Saute onion and peppers in oil until tender in large stock pot. Add all cans to pot. Add chicken and seasonings. Simmer until serving. Top with cheeses, sour cream, tabasco sauce, avocado and tortilla chips. Enjoy!

You can also prepare this in the crockpot, which is what I usually do, but today my crockpot is busy. :-)

It sounds delicious! I love tortilla soup and have been trying out different recipes for it trying to find my favorite - I'll have to add this one to the list to try.

I think this recipe sounds great!!! If you make it in the crockpot can you just throw the chicken in raw?? It's going on my list - thank you!

Packet Queen, I am so sorry that I just saw this comment!

To answer your question - When using the crock pot for this recipe, you will still need to cook the chicken and sauté the onion and peppers first, just the same as if you were preparing it to cook in a pot on the stove. You are just using the crock pot for the connivence of simmering the soup and keeping it warm for a busy night when you can't stay by the stove.
