Tortilla Soup

This is a good soup for a cold day. It is a cold day on Beaty's Creek, so I made this soup. It is not hard at all.

2 chicken leg quarters
1 large can Rotel
1 can corn
2 cans black beans-rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
1 T cumin
2 T chili powder
2 garlic cloves-minced
1 carton chicken broth

Boil chicken quarters in 2 quarts of water with garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Once chicken is done remove from broth and add Rotel, corn with liquid, rinsed black beans and additional chicken broth. Bring to a low simmer and add boned chicken back to soup. Simmer for 30 minutes and serve. We like to add cheese, avocado, sour cream, the juice from a line wedge and chips but it is up to you what you add.

  1. Hey, Im making that tonight ;) Tomorrow will be chicken I think. Sunday will be grilled cheese, though I might switch those two since Eric will be doing the furnace. Then, Monday, pizza-to go with watching the Powerpuff Girl Marathon-lol!
