That looks and sounds perfect for us PPO! I'm always looking for ways to use up the last of our Costo rotisserie chicken. Great idea!

Most of my recipes are from scratch but I also cook with ready made stuff. This was a great use of a pre cooked chicken and a few cans of ready made stuff. It only about 1.5 hours to cook this.

Nothing at all wrong with shortcuts imo. If I had to cook the chicken, make the tortillas, cook the dried beans, shuck the corn and make the salsa it would loose it's appeal for me.

I made this tonight and it was excellent on this cold night!
I found it an unnecessary step to use a blender on the toasted tortillas as shown in the video. Chopped small they blended into the soup just fine to thicken the soup with some extended simmering, making it even easier.

I topped the bowls with the toasted tortilla strips, grated cheese and lots of cilantro because we really like it.

GREAT soup!

Happy you liked the soup.

Great idea on chopping the tortillas up, I will have to try that.

LC, chicken and dumplings sounds good, but you'd really like this soup.

I used Herdez brand salsa, my favorite. I would have preferred the medium heat one but I used the mild as hubby is a bit of a weenie about spicy. I used hot pepper flakes sprinkled over my bowl. ;)
