3 cups chicken stock
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (10 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with green chilis
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilis
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups frozen corn
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
2 large flour tortillas, cut into thin, 2-inch long strips
1 cup shredded pepperjack or Monterrey jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Optional garnishes: crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, avocado, sour cream, chopped cilantro
In a slow cooker, combine everything except the tortilla strips, shredded cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours. Stir in tortilla strips and shredded cheese. Cook for an additional 2 hours on low, or until tortilla strips have dissolved into the soup and thickened it. Just before serving, stir in sour cream and cilantro. Top with additional garnishes and serve.
This is my new favorite soup recipe. It's easy to throw together (I like to use a rotisserie chicken) and has so many great flavors. The tortilla strips act as a wonderful thickening agent. Every time I make it, my family raves about it. And I think it tastes even better the next day. We like ours with pepperjack cheese, but for a milder version, use Monterrey jack instead.
