chicken tortilla soup for the soul

I am always looking for easy peasy ways to make dinner.

Sound familiar?

The other day, I decided that I wanted to make chicken tortilla soup.  Yes, I realize that the temperatures have been reaching the triple digits.  But like I always say, there's nothing like chicken tortilla soup for the soul*.

So I started looking around online for quick and easy recipes.  I soon found this baby.  And while some of the ingredients may or may not sound appetizing [*cough*NACHOCHEESESOUP*cough*], let me tell you, this turned out amazing.

In fact, the finished product looked something like this picture:

Picture found here, though I did not use that particular recipe.

If you don't want to click on another link, I'll do you a favor and post the recipe here:

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can Campbell's® Condensed Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 2.75 cups milk
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts halves, cooked and diced
  • tortilla strips

I also added one can of pinto beans, some green onions, and a little extra milk [and some light sour cream right before we served it].

And all you have to do is mix all of those ingredients together in the crock pot, cover, and cook on low for 5-6 hours [except for the tortilla strips, which go in right before you serve it].  Aka, you can put everything in the crockpot and forget about it for 5-6 hours.

Final verdict: It was a big hit and I definitely plan to make it again!

*Confession: I have never said this before.

Does it really look like that picture, because that looks unreal. I love tortilla soup, but I have never done homemade. I don't have a pinterest, but I am pinning this to my brain. Done.
