Tortilla Soup

Oh, I LOVE tortilla soup! In fact, I have three different kinds that I make often! Today I will share with you the FIRST tortilla soup recipe I fell in LOVE with. About 10 years ago, a roommate in college gave me this recipe, and I have been making it for myself and my family ever since! Don't be fooled by the simpleness, it tastes GREAT!

2 C. chicken, cooked and shredded
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS. olive oil
2 C. beef broth
2 C. chicken broth
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
tortilla chips
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

In a 4 qt. saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil. Add beef and chicken broth, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.

Add the 2 C. shredded, cooked chicken to soup and cook 5 minutes more.

Place crumbled tortilla chips in each bowl. Pour soup into bowls and garnish with avocado and Monterey Jack cheese.

Thanks Leah C!

Thanks Shelley! I have this recipe already (we had the same source :), but I have been trying to remember who I got it from for a while. I had the recipe packed and couldn't find one like it for the whole time I lived with Matt's parents. It is the BEST!!! Thank you Leah!!!
