This is a secret and wonderfully easy recipe I discovered in our first year of marriage. All you need is one chicken breast (or a can of chicken breast if you want ridiculously easy) boiled and shredded, plus 5 cans (although, I often use frozen corn) of other ingredients. It makes a huge pot and is inexpensive, too. It is a favorite in our family and can be doctored up however you like–I’ve served this for birthday parties, at summer barbeques, and at least twice a month since we got married.
To top the soup, I slice 5 tortillas into strips, toss those with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Then, I bake them at 400 until golden brown. They get soft and tasty in the soup, but not soggy like tortilla chips.
If you decide to try this soup (and you should!), you will only be out about $5, you’ll be able to feed your whole family, and it only takes about 20 minutes total. Inexpensive, nourishing, and easy. Those are my requirements for dinner.
