Chicken Taco Soup
A while back I decided to take a casserole recipe and change it up a bit to make a soup/stew. My husband loves the casserole and was very surprised and impressed by the soup. This is very tasty recipe for anyone who likes spicy food.
I must confess, I didn't write down how much salsa I used in the soup. I believe I mixed in a cup and then added more without measuring, so I just made an estimate here. But my dad always lived by the rule that "a recipe is just a suggestion," and I like that rule. The amount of salsa used for this recipe is really an issue of personal preference, so I think you can be your own judge.
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans Tyson all white chicken breast (or 3-4 cooked chicken breasts, chopped)
1 1/4 cup chicken broth (or water)
1 tablespoon chilipowder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
3/4 to 1 3/4 cups of salsa (depending on your preference for spicy stuff, and on how thick you want the soup to be.)
2 cups cheese
1 can rotel tomatoes (optional)
Mix all ingredients together, heat to boiling, then lower the heat, stirring occasionally till the mixture is cooked through. Serve with chips, and top with cheese, sour cream, and/or salsa if desired.
