Quick and EASY Tortilla Soup

This is one of those last minute soups that taste like you've been slaving away in the kitchen all day long! It's one of my favorite cold wintery weater dinners!! Start by picking up all these canned ingredients and just have them on hand 'for a rainy day'.

Ingredients:
  • 1 roasted chicken, (like the one from Costco or Sams Club.) or Shredded or 2-3 chicken breasts cooked and shredded. (I like the roasted chicken flavor best, and it's SO easy, bring home and shred!)
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese*
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • I can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4-5 green onions, chopped
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (to taste)
  • Tomatoes, Chopped (I like chopped canned tomatoes)
  • 2 teaspoons Cumin

Directions:

Heat chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and cream cheese in a large pot. Stir with wire whisk until smooth. Add chicken and all remaining ingredients. Heat through and serve with cheese, avocado, salsa, chips, or whatever you like!

*Note- if you don't like creamy soups, leave out cream cheese and this is still a delicious soup!
