Chicken Tortillia Soup

One of my favorite things to cook in the fall is soup, and my favorite soup to cook is Chicken Tortilla Soup. I love this recipe because you just throw it all in a crock pot and eat when your ready. And the more condiments the better! Hope you enjoy :)

*Chicken - cooked and chopped (at least 1 cup, but you can use however much chicken as you like. I often buy the breast tenderloin packages because they are cheap, boil the chicken the day before, chop it up and then its ready for the soup)
*1 Can chicken stock
*1 Can enchilada sauce
*1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
*1 small can chopped green chilies
*1 can tomato sauce
*2 cans corn
*1/4 cup finely chopped onion
*2 cups water
*2 tsp garlic powder
*2 tsp chili powder
*optional add ins - 1 Can black beans, 1 Can chickpeas

 - Place all ingredients in crock pot or on stove and let the soup simmer for at least 1 hour.

Possible toppings -
*shredded cheese
*tortilla strips
*chopped cilantro (a must!)
*fresh avocados

Easy and delicious, its a recipe that leaves you feeling full but not heavy! Enjoy the soup and enjoy fall, we are enjoying all the beautiful changing fall trees on the Virginia mountains!

Prayers and Blessings - Dawn
