During such a cold winter, I though you might like one of our favorite recipes. This soup is very filling and fantastic for leftovers.
You need one deli roasted chicken. Debone and shred the meat. Place the meat in a 3 to 4 quart pot. Add one box of chicken stock.
To this mixture add:
1 medium chopped Onion
2 mashed Garlic Cloves
1 1/2 T Cumin
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
2 T Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Red Pepper (This is optional if you don't like heat)
1 (6oz) can Tomato Paste
2 (10oz) cans Rotell ( Diced Tomatoes with green chilies)
Fill the pot with water and simmer for at least 1 hour. ( I like to let it cook for a couple of hours to enhance the flavor)
Garnish the soup with:
(You can make fried Tortilla strips by cutting Corn Tortillas into strips and frying in oil or make it easy and by a bag of Corn Chips)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
and a dollop of Sour Cream
I also enjoy fresh lime juice for a little tangy flavor.
We really enjoy making this meal when we have family and friends over to share with us. It's a wonderful dish, full of flavor. I hope you enjoy!
