dump and run soup

i don't post recipe ideas because, well, i get sick of having to think so much about food...what to buy, when to buy it, how much to buy, what to fix on what nights...you may know what i mean.

but...this is something that i have to share...super quick. super easy. super cheap. and it's a fam fav, done in 20 minutes and it's nutritious. woot woot.


chicken tortilla soup

1 can diced tomotoes with green chilis
i can cooked chicken (or use leftover pieces of chicken)
1 box of chicken broth
1 clove garlic, crushed (or the easy route of 1 teaspoon crushed garlic)
1 cup prepared salsa
1 can black beans
and i often add a beer for flavor {but only if you can let stew on the stove top...don't get the kids saucy!}

dump it all in a stew pot and simmer for at least 20 minutes. scoop into bowls and chow down!

we like it best served with shredded cheddar cheese on top and crushed up tortilla chips.
super yummy!

My family loves chicken tortilla soup. My recipe is a little different than this, but yours sounds better. :) I love black beans, but never thought of throwing them in this soup. Yumm.
