Leftovers Recipe – Easy Tortilla Soup
I had a lot of leftover corn and rotisserie chicken. I was trying to decide what to make for dinner one night. I ended up using the leftovers to make a really good tortilla soup.
In a big soup pot I brought chicken broth to a boil. I used pre-made chicken broth from HEB. I simmered the leftover chicken, corn, carrots, and onions until the carrots were soft, but not mushy. I kept all of it on low for a while to really soak up the flavor. During this time, you can add additional spices. I added a some lime, salt and pepper. You can add hot pepper if you like it spicy.
I served the soup with cheese, tortilla strips, and lime wedges. Our guests could then add whatever toppings they wanted.
