Chicken Tortilla Soup

Last night i made chicken tortilla soup it is yummy to have on a cold night. and it is super easy all cooked in the crock pot


ingredients: 4 chicken breasts, 1 can black beans, 1 can corn(drained),2 cans tomato sauce, 2 cans Mexican style stewed tomatoes, 1 small bottle of pace salsa (or any other salsa you like)

serves 8

so just layer the chicken in the crock pot and season with your favorite seasoning i use garlic powder, tony's, and cumin


then just put everything else in. 100_2325

and cook on high for about 5 hours. take a chicken breast out and check to make sure if it is done (it will be most likely) as long as it is take all the breasts out and cut them in strips it will probably just shred off. mix it all back in and keep the crock pot on.


ok so now for the part that makes it great. you can top this with your favorite tortilla chip but i like to make my own. just take a tortilla and cut it in strips and add it to a pan with just a little oil in the bottom. cook until crisp and golden, as soon as they come out add a little kosher salt.



i used 6 tortillas and 1 tablespoon of oil for each 3 tortillas so for 1 tortilla per person it totaled 2 ww points much better than chips and it tastes delish.

ok so take your bowl of soup


top with cheese (i used 1/2 an ounce 1.5 points), 1 tablespoon of sour cream(1 pt.), and the chips(2 points) . with the soup at 3 points per serving. 7.5 points total and VERY filling!
