Tortilla Soup

2 cans of black beans (drained)

2 cans of diced Italian Style tomatoes

1 can of chicken broth

1 can of tomato sauce

1 small can of green chillis

1 small jar of salsa

1/2 cup of water

2 chicken breasts, cooked & shredded/chopped into small pieces.

Combine all but chicken & cook for at least 1hr. Then add cooked chicken and cook for another hour. Beans should be soft. It is also ok to eat if not cooked so long. Just make sure to bring everything to a boil and cook for 20 min, add chicken and cook additional 10 minutes.

*I have done this in the crockpot for 6-8 hrs on low (chicken and all) and it has turned out super delicious! I just added a bit more water/tomato juice. The longer it cooks, the more tender the chicken and the softer the beans.

Top with crumbled Tortilla chips, cheddar cheese, & sour cream. ENJOY!
