Tortilla Soup-AKA what to do with all that shredded chicken!

November 9, 2011 in Main Dishes , Soups

We are taco’ed out over here, but we still had lots of leftover chicken so I have been repurposing it!

Last night, scrambled eggs with chicken, heirloom tomatoes and asiago cheese.

Tonight, Toritilla Soup.

(Let me tell you, it is kinda hard to blog about dinner when you don’t have a real camera and it is dark in the house at 4:30!)

NOTE: To make this, I did not follow a recipe. I just improvised with what was already in the house. Feel free to add and take away based on your pantry! But if you do follow my lead, you will not be disappointed!! It was GOOD!!

1 Onion-Diced

1 Zuchinni-Diced

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili podwer

garlic and salt to taste

5 dried chipotle peppers, seeded and diced (DO NOT LICK YOUR FINGERS!)

1 large ball jar homemade bone broth (or whatever broth you use)

1 large ball jar water

1 can diced tomatoes

1 bag frozen corn

1 can black beans (drain and rinse)

Squeeze tomato paste (if you still buy it in the small can, stop! The squeezer is so much easier!)

AND FINALLY! Shredded chicken.

Serve with sour cream and blue corn chips.

(You might want to remove the chipotles after simmering)

I need a lesson in iphone photography and iphoto editing!

In my next life I am going to blog beautiful pictures of perfect food,

but in the meantime I have a job and kids so you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit!!


P.S. I am allergic to avocado so everyone wondering why I would leave that out, now you know!!

    It can be accomplished if you take into account some basic essentials.
    However, the fact that there is no regulation at the local, state
    or federal level as to what e-cigarettes can or cannot contain, might mean that an e-cigarette user is doing unintended harm to those exposed to secondhand e-cigarette
    vapors. Some individuals say that the ones they’re using generally last for
    fourteen days to a month.
