Tortilla Soup

Tonight, I had Nathan make dinner.  I pulled up the recipe for him on the computer, and then instructed him not to follow it pretty much at all, which is my normal way of cooking, and which drives him nuts.  What I rewrote for him looks exactly like this, and we loved it.  The kids devoured it, too, so we call that a success!

2 T oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 smallish onion, chopped fine
1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 T taco seasoning
6 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
6 cloves garlic, minced

1 can of chicken

avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips

In a large stock pot heat oil. Add garlic, cilantro and onion. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add taco seasoning and chicken stock. Return to a boil, reduce heat to medium and add salt.

Simmer for 30 minutes  and then stir in chicken. Heat through before putting in bowls and adding toppings.  Enjoy!
