A very easy and delicious version of tortilla soup that can be made with food storage ingredients. Your kids will love helping with this one. And guess what?
It has a hint of lime!
2 cans (28oz or 3 1/2c) Chicken Broth
1/8c Taco Seasoning (or to taste)
A few shakes of garlic powder =)
Juice of 1 lime
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed*
1 can of corn with liquid
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chiles (Rotel offers Mild, Medium and Hot!)
1 large avocado, peeled and diced
- Pour broth into soup pot, add taco seasoning, garlic powder and lime juice. Stir until well blended.
- Add all other ingredients except avocado. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 15 min or so.
- Add avocado just before serving.
- Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and some crispy tortilla chips. Mmmmm.
*The original recipe calls for canned chicken, which works if you're going for a food storage friendly recipe. But I would argue that it's much better with fresh or frozen chicken breasts. =)
*The amount of taco seasoning you add will add or decrease the spiciness of the soup, so if you like it spicy....bring it on!
*ALSO...if you have Kids in the kitchen, they will love helping you empty the cans into the pot!
