that tortilla soup

the one I mentioned yesterday? I wanted to share the recipe because it is a really delicious meal and perfect for nights when you need something quick. It's pretty much a few cans dumped in a pot and left to simmer for a bit. I use Quorn brand "chicken" breasts - you can obviously replace that with real roasted chicken

Like I said, I found this on Two Peas and modified it a bit (I would link to the thread but I didn't save it - apologies!) I suspect this is is a pretty forgiving recipe that could probably be adjusted quite a bit by adding/subtracting to suit your family and their tastes. I'm sure there are lots of versions of this soup floating around as well - this was just the first iteration I have tried.

Saute a small chopped onion and some minced garlic in a little olive oil. Stir in one can each rotel,  fire roasted diced tomatoes, black beans and sweet corn. I think the original recipe called for draining the corn and beans but I don't bother...I just reduced the liquid a bit. Add about 6 cups of vegetable broth (or water + vegetable bouillon) and a couple of shredded chicken breasts (the veggie chicken breasts I use shred fine and taste like chicken to me :) Season with salt, pepper, cumin and a little chili powder and simmer for 30 minutes or so. We top it with diced avocado, a bit of cheese and tortilla strips.
