While I was doing that, I thought, hmm, I should make supper and soup has been sounding good. I had some chicken broth I'd made after roasting a chicken in the crockpot last week and leftover chicken and carrots, so I threw this together.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
1/2 gallon chicken broth (homemade from free range chickens is best)
leftover chicken and carrots
1 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans (it's important to cook red/kidney beans, as they contain a toxin that has to be cooked out)
1 1/2 cups garbanzo beans
1 can diced green chiles
1 quart diced tomatoes and juice
Put in crockpot and cook on low all day.
About 15 minutes before serving, thinly cut the tortillas into short strips and put in with soup.
I got the idea for the tomatoes, chiles and tortillas from the $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook, which I highly recommend
