Freezer Meals: Tortilla Chicken Soup

Tortilla Chicken Soup

What you need

Cutting board
Ziplock bags

Ingredients (1 meal)

2 cups of cubed chicken, raw
    (*) I substituted with a bag of tenderloins
1 can of corn
1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
2 cans of 14oz chicken broth
1 can of tomato puree
    (*)I substituted with spicy V8 juice
1 can of diced tomatoes and green chiles
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1 bay leaf
     (*) I substitutedwith a dash of ground bay leaves


Gather all your ingredients and chop your onions.

Dump all your ingredients into the bag.  Push out air and label.

Chicken Tortilla Soup
8 hours low
4 hours high
Add tortilla strips


Dump everything into the crockpot and cook based on setting. 

Five minutes before serving shred your choice of flour or corn tortilla (I used two flour) into thin strips and mix into soup.

Both the boyfriend and kid gave this a great review.  It had a mild spice to it but was very light, we all had two servings because the flavor was so wonderful.  We ended up with a total of seven good sized servings.

I made two freezer batches, so I am looking forward to the next batch.
