I posted this recipe before, sans photo. Here's the photo of the goodness I call Chicken Tortilla Soup.
And here's the recipe again for those who missed it before...
Shortcuts I have found useful:
1. use the frozen, chopped green peppers, onions (1c of each is about right)
2. use rotisserie chicken from the deli (I usually don't for $$ purposes, but time-wise it makes this a cinch)
3. All that's left is basically canned stuff. I often use chicken bouillon instead of the canned broth.
If you want to use ground beef that would work as well. Or this works as a veggie meal.
I most often use chicken with skin + bone, boiled, de-skinned, de-boned and chopped up; 2 chicken breasts are just the right amount.
