Chicken Tortilla Soup

This soup is packed with so much flavor and more importantly, very easy to make. You have to try it while the weather is still cold.

Using a slow cooker, add one pound of cooked and shredded chicken, a 15 oz. can of whole tomatoes, can of enchilada sauce, a can of green chilies, 2 cloves of garlic. Add one medium onion, chopped. Add 32 oz. of chicken broth and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and one bay leaf. Add 10 oz. of either canned or frozen corn. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Or on high for 3 to 4 hours.

Now how easy was that? Garnish with either corn tortillas brushed with oil, cut into strips and baked for 10 to 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

For one of our Friday Night dinners, I paired it with a seven layer bean dip  made the day before and some margaritas.
