Souptacular Recipe: Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup

It's A Soup-Tacular!

Here is one of the old standards for our annual Christmas Eve Mexican Fiesta!

Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup

1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp oil

4 cups chicken stock
15 oz can of Rotel (or diced tomatoes with onions and peppers if you can't get Rotel where you live)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp Mexican or Southwestern spice mix (I use either Emeril's or Pampered Chef.)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

4 tsp flour
1/2 cup water

1 lb cooked chicken, cubed or pulled
1 cup cream
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Saute oil, garlic, and oinions in a large pan or dutch oven until soft.

Add chicken stock, spices, tomatoes, and Worcestershire sauce.

Thoroughly mix flour and water to make a pseudo-roux, then whisk into soup to thicken.

Bring to a low boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes.

Stir in chicken, cream and cheese until thoroughly blended and heated.

Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips. Garnish with fresh chopped
cilantro.

Scoot on over to Boomama's place for more good stuff!
