TORTILLA SOUP

SONY DSC

4-5 chicken breasts

5 cups salsa (this measurement is approximate) you want enough to cover your chicken

1 bag Bear Creek Tortilla Soup mix

3 (14 ounce) cans corn (drained)

2 (19ounce) cans black beans (drained)

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

  1. Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker and cover them with the salsa. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Remove from slow cooker let cool and shred (Save the salsa it was cooked in). I like to do this the day before and I place the shredded chicken back in the salsa to marinate overnight.
  1. Follow the cooking directions on the bag of Bear Creek Soup mix in a large pot.
  1. When it is done; add the corn, black beans and salt and pepper.
  1. Add the chicken and the salsa it has been marinating in, to the pot.
  1. Let simmer for a few minutes so that all ingredients are warm.

TOASTED TORTILLA STRIPS

Place a flour tortilla in a frying pan on medium heat and let it cook on each side just until it starts to brown. Remove from the pan and use a pizza cutting wheel to cut it into thin strips.
