Oh! I am having a craving! You should see our area today. The leaves are starting to change! HELLO! Is it really about to be Fall? Oh! That does it! I MUST have some homemade Tortilla Soup! Anyone else? Well, I will make it easy for you. Here is the recipe that we use. It is by my friend Janet Birkey. You will love it! Bon appetit!

MMmmmmmmm….good! This hearty soup is enough for my man that I’ve called Honey for over 16 years…a real steak and potatoes kind of guy!
Chicken thighs (or any parts…we just like dark meat)…cook and save the water you cook them in. How many will depend on your family.
After cooking chicken, I always de-bone it.
2 cans green beans
2 cans corn
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes (or 2 cans if you like!)
I usually also add 1/2 can of tomato sauce or a can of tomato paste.
Add the de-boned chicken back in the pot, sprinkle liberally with garlic. Serve by crushing tortilla corn-chips in a bowl, put soup on top and sprinkle liberally with cheddar cheese.
