Chicken Tortilla Soup


My wingding version that I loved.


2 stalks celery

1 large onion

2 TBS butter

1 whole chicken

1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes

1 can of Rotel tomatoes with cilantro and lime

1 can of Rotel tomatoes with green chiles

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp of cumin

1/2 Mexican oregano

Corn tortillas sliced into thin strips and fried in canola oil

shredded Monterey jack cheese

Chopped cilantro

Sliced avocado



Saute 1 cup chopped celery and 1 large onion in 2 TBS of butter until soft.

Add a whole Chicken and fill with water to cover chicken. Boil 1 hour.

Remove chicken and let cool before removing meat from bones. Strain broth and return broth to pot. Add all 3 cans of tomatoes and the can of black beans. Add chili powder, cumin and Mexican oregano. Add chicken back to soup and boil 45 min.

Serve soup topped with fried corn tortilla strips, cilantro, Monterey jack cheese and sliced avocado
