This is super easy (love those kind) and pretty healthy too! (love those kind too)
No real measurements, just make however much you need.
Quick and easy.(this is a version of what is served at El Toro)
This is only one of my awesome Chicken Tortilla Soup recipes, click HERE to check out the other.
Jalapeno, chopped (add seeds if you want it really hot)
Chicken broth, (low sodium of course :) )
Tomatoes, diced - canned or fresh
Chicken, shredded (already cooked)
Chipotle Chile pepper -found in spices-
(or you could get real, fresh, chipotle peppers, you'd have to get them from a Mexican grocery store most likely.. they may have them in cans, but be careful cuz they can be really hot)
What to do:
In sauce pan, saute over low heat in a little bit of oil - onions, garlic, and jalapenos.
Add a lil CC Pepper, and keep stirring until onions and peppers are somewhat tender.
***Your HEAT will come mostly from the CC Pepper. So don't be skimpy on the jalapenos. :) They're delicious! So start small with the CC, and add more later if you'd like it a lil spicier. ***
Add chicken broth.
Turn up heat and cook til hot throughout, or starting to boil.
Serve it up! Add some tortilla strips/chips, avocados and limes for extra deliciousness.
**For an example on measurements... For two of us, I used about 1/2 an onion, 1/2 a pepper, 1-2 garlic cloves, 2 cans tomatoes, 2 cans Chicken broth, and about 2 large chicken breasts cooked and shredded. Amount of spice depends on how spicy you want it.... I just add til it tastes delicious. :)**
