Soup-a-Palooza: Link Up & Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Today we celebrate SOUP!!

The act of combining various ingredients in a large pot to create a nutritious, filling,  simple to make/serve food is probably as old as the history of cooking!

Soup and stews have evolved according to local ingredients and tastes.  So today, we are celebrating those ingredients and traditions with our favorite recipes!!

Kristen of Dine and Dish and I along with our sponsors would like to invite YOU to share your favorite soup, stew or chili recipes!!

In the past I’ve shared several of my family’s favorite soups and chili recipes, many made with Bush’s Beans all pair perfectly with with Westminster Crackers or served along side a slice of Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread.  Today I’m sharing a recipe given to me by a friend (aren’t those usually the best?!)  I fried some flour tortillas and it was the perfect meal for the extremely cold and snowy winter we’ve been having in St. Louis!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

 

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yield: 6

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ingredients

  • 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas, (preferably a dried out)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cans(14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz) Rotel (Mexican Lime and Cilantro)
  • 1 can (16 oz) Bush’s BEST Refried Beans
  • 1 can (4 oz) diced Green Chilies
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken from the store)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges (optional)
  • Monterrey Jack Cheese, shredded (optional)
  • Cilantro, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. If you tortillas are fairly fresh and moist, you want them a little dried out. So, to dry them out a little, put them on a baking sheet and put them in a 200°F oven at for about 10 mins. (if your tortillas are older and more dried out, you can skip that step).
  2. Cut tortillas in half, then cut halves into 1/4-inch strips. In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Fry strips in oil, about a handful at a time, until they light brown and crisp. Remove with tongs from oil; drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt (optional). Set aside.
  3. In a medium stock pot, over medium-high heat, combine tomatoes, broth, beans and chilies, bring to a boil.
  4. Add corn, reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes.
  5. Add chicken and heat through.
  6. To serve; ladle soup into bowls. Top with cheese, tortilla strips and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

    I don’t have a blog, so here is my soup recipe. It is one that my grandmother and mother made, so it’s a family tradition.

    Salmon Chowder

    1 pound can salmon — 2 cups
    2 cups water
    1 cup tomato juice
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1 cup raw potatoes, cubed
    1 teaspoon celery salt
    4 tablespoons buter
    4 tablespoons flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    3 cups milk
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

    Discard skin and bones from salmon (if necessary).

    Combine salmon, water, tomato juice, onion, potatoes and celery salt in a large kettle.

    Cover and simmer slowly for 40 minutes.

    In another saucepan, melt butter, add flour, salt and mustard; mix until smooth. Gradually add milk. Cook while stirring until thick and smooth; add worcestershire sauce.

    Add sauce to salmon mixture; stir well and serve piping hot.

    Makes 10-12 servings.

    Thanks, Cheryl, for hosting the event and for this recipe! It’s really different and sounds so good… love refried beans and we’re big southwestern fans. I’d like to invite you to participate in Foodie Friday.

    Thanks again. I am obviously going to get nothing done today because I keep wanting to refresh the page to see what new soup recipes have been added! lol
