It's quick to prepare, inexpensive to buy, and it tastes great!
Mix the canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, and cans of soup together and let it come to a boil. Let it cool for a few minutes. Top it with some shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips. It doesn't "look" appetizing, but it tastes GREAT!

You mentioned both tomato sauce and tomato paste in the recipe. Which one is correct? Thank you!

It is full of fiber and lower in calories than many taco type soups (and quick).
In a large pan combine the beans, broth, corn, salsa, chicken and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Crumble some of the tortilla chips into soup bowls. Ladle soup over chips. Top each serving with a few more chips, a sprinkle of cheese and a spoon of light sour cream. This makes about 6 servings.

Does anyone have a recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup? Safeway now sells various kinds of soup pre-made and they are very good but pretty expensive. Thanks, Sandy
I teach a cooking class everyday and the following soup recipe is one of my client's favorites, It's also inexpensive to make.
Sliced black olives, diced green and red bell pepper, chopped onion, shredded Mexican cheese, sour cream or guacamole.
Combine all soup ingredients except flour tortillas in slow cooker. Stir to mix. I like to leave this in the fridge overnight, it gives better flavor. Cook on low 5-6 hours or high 3-4. When hot- Cut tortillas into 1 by 1/2" strips. Place to cover bottom of serving bowls. Pour hot soup over tortilla strips and serve with toppings. Soup can also be made on top of the stove. Combine the same as above and bring to a boil. Let simmer 15-20 minutes. Serve as above.
Note: If you boil the chicken and add 1/2 tsp. Better Than Boullion to the water, the chicken will have a better flavor. The soup will be thick. If you desire, add a little water but it will taste better if you don't. Serves 4-6 hearty servings. (06/02/2004)
