Soup Season

It's soup season! Love it! My husband isn't much of a soup fan, so it's been a challenge through the years to find something that he approves of as "man soup." It has to be hearty, meaty, flavorful.
A friend is hosting a soup exchange of recipes and I thought I'd share one that is husband approved! There is one special ingredient that is hard to come by here in McComb, MS, though.
Tortilla Soup
1 Tbsp of 21 Seasoning Salute* (or other)
5 cups chicken broth
3 chicken breasts (cooked & cubed)
1 small jar of salsa
2 cans of black beans drained
1 can of corn drained
Cheese to your liking
3 cups white corn tortilla chips
Dash of hot pepper sauce
•Combine chkn cubes & broth in Lg sauce pan. Bring to boil
•Reduce heat to simmer. Add corn, beans, 2 cups of broken chips, salsa, seasoning, 1cup shredded cheese.
•Heat thoroughly.
•Garnish w/more cheese & chips before serving.
Love it! Serves 6-8. Takes about 20-25 minutes on the stove top. Easy!
*21 Seasoning Salute is a jar of seasoning from Trader Joe's with no salt added! The closest store to McComb is in Baton Rouge, LA.
