Easy Chicken Taco Soup
3 chicken breasts
oil, salt and pepper
1 carton of chicken broth (32 oz I think)
1 large can of diced tomatoes (or 2 normal sized cans)
1 can of rotel (tomatoes with green chillies)
1 can of corn (drained)
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 package of taco seasoning
toppings-shredded cheese (I like pepper jack), sour cream, hot sauce, crushed tortilla chips
-Cook the chicken in a little bit of oil in the bottom of a big pan or dutch oven. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the chicken and shred it.
-Add everything else to the same pan and then add the chicken back in.
-Add a couple cans of water depending on how thick you want the soup to be.
-Let simmer for awhile (I let it cook for about an hour).
-Serve with the toppings.
I made some burnt grilled cheeses to go with this. I suck at making grilled cheese but my husband is really good at it so we've made that his specialty in the kitchen from now on.
PS-Obviously don't make this if you are currently in one of the states that having record breaking temperatures this week. However it's been rainy and cooler here so it worked for me.
You should probably make this tonight since there's so many tv shows on. You don't want to be making something hard while you are trying to watch 8 tv shows at the same time. Or maybe that's just me.
