Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

1. Boil chicken in chicken stock for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender enough to pull apart.  You might need to add additional water to keep the chicken covered while it is cooking.  Only add enough water to keep the chicken covered.

2. After chicken has cooked, remove from stock and pull apart with 2 forks.  Once chicken has been pulled apart, add back to the stock.

3.  Add tomato sauce, rotel tomatoes, black beans, great northern beans and corn to stock – stir and reduce to simmer.

4. Let soup simmer for about 30 minutes.

5. Top with cheese, sour cream or tortilla strips.  Enjoy!
