Gringo Chicken Tortilla Soup on Soup Recipe Swap

Winter arrived in St. Louis yesterday and every time I looked out the window at work I felt like I was in a snow globe.  As the wind whipped the flakes around, all I could think of was getting home and hunkering down with a warm bowl of soup.  Which, as luck would have it, coincides with the Soup Recipe Swap I had planned to do with some of my blogger friends.

We have a few soup favorites and today I'd like to share the one I decided to whip up yesterday - Gringo Chicken Tortilla Soup,

Here's What You Need
1-1/2 cups cooked chicken
1 jar of black bean & corn salsa
1 lb. Velveeta (cubed)
2 - 15 oz. can chicken broth
1 - 15 oz. can corn (drained)
Sour cream

Here's What You Do
Stir broth, chicken, salsa and corn together.  Simmer 10 minutes.  

Add cubed Velveeta, stir and simmer until melted.  

Serve with tortilla chips and sour cream.  

The black bean and corn salsa we use comes from a local vendor.  If you're in the St. Louis / Southern Illinois area, look for Gringo George's Black Bean and Corn Salsa.  The stuff is amazing!  It has just enough spice to give it a nice little kick. 

Once I made it home last night, this recipe came together and was ready to enjoy in less than 30 minutes.  Using a rotisserie chicken pre-made from the grocery store helped cut the prep time.  If you're in need of a quick meal that will warm you up from the inside out, give this recipe a try!

For more soup, stew and chili recipes, please check out the others participating in the swap.  I'm passing it over to Cindi at Diary of a Mad Retiree.  I'm excited to see what she is sharing!
