Tortilla Soup from your Pantry

We were snowed in and I wanted a rich, hearty soup. I went to the pantry and saw that I had most of the ingredients for tortilla soup. I decided to try and make a quick version that I could make on the road, and it turned out as good as some I have had in a restaurant.


 1 cooked chicken breast or can of chicken
 1 can chicken broth
 1 can diced tomatoes
 1 can corn
 2 teaspoons Mexican spice blend
 1 Tablespoon dried onion
 1 Tablespoon dried bell peppers


Combine all ingredients in a large pan and bring to almost boiling. Turn down the heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Garnish with lime juice, shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese and tortilla chips. Other garnish include fresh cilantro, sour cream, avocado slices, jalapeños peppers. Use a prepared Mexican Spice Blend or make your own from my recipe in the hints section under good ideas.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
