Description

The easiest, cheesiest, chicken tortilla soup. I usually make this in a stoneware dish in the microwave, but I am posting the cooktop version for all of you. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope (1 Oz.) Chicken Fajita Seasoning Mix (or Taco Seasoning)
  • 1-½ pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Diced
  • ½ cups Chopped Onion
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • ⅓ cups Flour
  • 2-½ cups Chicken Broth
  • ⅓ cups Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Velveeta
  • 8 ounces, weight Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • ⅓ cups Salsa (any Variety)
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Fritos (topping)

Preparation

Prepare seasoning mix according to package directions. In a skillet, add seasoning and diced chicken. Cook until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Drain, and set aside.

In large saucepan (or pot), saute onion in butter for 2 minutes. Stir in flour until blended, then gradually stir in the broth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for two minutes longer, or until thickened slightly. Add tomatoes, Velveeta, Jack cheese and salsa. Cook on medium-low until cheese is melted.

Stir in heavy cream and add the chicken back in. Heat through but do not boil. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes to thicken. Garnish with Fritos (you can also use guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheddar). Enjoy!
