Chicken Tortilla Soup


One of our family favorites!




Chicken Tortilla Soup







Ingredients:
Homemade Cheese Sauce (or use 8 oz of Velveeta, cubed - but don't, OK?)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
1 can of Rotel (tomatoes with green chilies)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla Chips

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.  Whisk in flour and cook, stirring often for about 3 minutes.  Slowly whisk in chicken broth just a little at a time, then whisk in milk the same way.  Reduce heat to low and add cheese sauce. Stir and cook on low until all melted together.  Stir in Rotel, chicken and spices.  Heat through.  Serve with crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese and sour cream.


 Eat so quickly that you say to your husband, "WAIT! Don't take another bite!  Take a picture of your soup with your iPhone so I can post the recipe because I already scarfed mine down so fast that I only have an empty licked bowl to show for it!"

Enjoy.

  2. My kids were just asking for this soup the other day but I had lost my original recipe. I would have to omit the curry though, cause hubs hates it (boo hoo, I love it!) Thanks for sharing!

  4. I made this soup the day you posted the recipe. My family loved it! Had it at a restaurant once and happy that I now know how to make it at home.
