I am on a mission for the next couple of weeks! That is nothing unusual though. Having a mission in life is a good thing. I have to present four twenty minute talks to about two hundred freshmen parents. The topic is feeding hungry teenagers with good healthy food and doing it quickly. What popped in my mind first was the crockpot. You have to use this if you walk through the door at 6:00 PM and the teens are demanding food at 6:01PM. This is a recipe that I have used many many times . The name says soup, but to me it is more like a stew. To make it more of a soup add more tomato sauce. Try it when you are in a time crunch it will be a hit!!
Chicken Tortilla Soup (Stew)
- 4 chicken breast
- 2 15 oz. cans of black beans
- 2 15 oz. cans of Rotel tomatoes
- 1 cup salsa ( I used the whole jar)
- 4 oz. chopped green chilies
- 1 14 oz can tomato sauce
- Tortilla chips
- Monterey Jack cheese
Put all the ingredients except tortilla chips and cheese into the crockpot. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Just before serving take out the chicken and shred with a fork. Place back in the crockpot. In a bowl place chips with cheese and ladle soup on top. This makes about 10 servings. You can easily half the recipe. The shredded chicken is great in chicken quesadillas .
