Thankfully prior to the storm we did some grocery shopping, but even by today we are starting to get low on a few essential items. Tonight for dinner the only thing I had was chicken, so I pulled out my trusty ole "VMGR-252 Family Cookbook" and low and behold a recipe jumped out that sounded good and wouldn't you know I had all the ingredients?? Isn't God amazing at providing all our provisions? It was so delicious that I had to blog about it and write down the recipe so I can remember it for next time since I always "adjust" even when following a recipe, so here it is:
Chicken Tortilla Soup
3 skinless boneless chicken breasts (cut in pieces)
1/2 yellow onion
2 cloves garlic (pressed)
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chilly powder
1 can Rotel (undrained)
1 small can chopped green chiles (undrained)
1 large container of chicken broth
cheddar cheese (shredded)
flour tortillas (cut into 2" pieces) I used two and it was enough
Cut tortillas into 2" pieces and bake them at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until crispy. I accidentally cooked them a little long, but they still turned out great.
Spray a stock/soup pot with a little bit of cooking spray, cook the chicken and add the onion and garlic, cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the broth, Rotel, and chiles. Cook until boiling.
When your tortillas are done place them at the bottom of the bowl, pour soup on top then top with cheese and sour cream. ENJOY!
The picture shows a common side dish in our home. I know I have blogged about it before. It is applesauce with blackberries & blueberries with a bit of sugar on top. We love applesauce around here and adding any type of fruit on top is an added treat.
Happy Eating Everyone!
David had a really late and really LONG nap this evening so when he woke up (at 8:30PM) he was all set to go. We were watching Ice Age 2 on TV and he learned a "sloth dance" and would like you all to see his new moves. And yes his underwear is on backwards but he put them on all by himself so we didn't want to discourage him :) Silly boy
