Chicken Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup is another recipe you can really use whatever you have or whatever your tastes are.  You could even use ground turkey verses chicken, or just do a vegetarian version with beans only.  This is how I typically make it:

1 or 2 chicken breasts, cooked then shredded
1 zucchini
1 cup of frozen corn
1 onion
1 green pepper (or other color)
a few carrots
2 stalks celery
1 can black/pinto/garbanzo beans (which ever you prefer or more than one if you want!)
1 can refried beans
1 or 2 cans diced green chilis
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 large carton of chicken broth
1/2 to 1 cup salsa
olive oil
S&P, taco seasoning, crushed red pepper, garlic, oregano, any other seasoning you may like
shredded cheese
sour cream
fresh cilantro
crunched up tortilla chips or fritos

Cook your chicken and shred it.  Heat up the olive oil and cook diced veggies until tender.  Add in remaining ingredients (besides your toppings of cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and chips) and warm through.  Season to your own tastes.  Serve with toppings.
