Chicken Soup (Dumplings, Rice, Pasta)

This is my chicken soup base. It goes with Dumplings, (homemade or frozen) Rice, or Pasta. 🙂 


Chicken Tortilla Soup

3 large chicken breast

1 large can green enchilada sauce

2-3 cups chicken stock

1 can petite diced tomatoes with juices

1/2 bag frozen corn

Small can green chili’s

1 white chicken chili packet


chopped onion, about 1/2 of a medium size

minced garlic, maybe a tsp or so

Few heaping tbs of sour cream

Yellow rice (precooked)

Flour tortillas

Boil the chicken in the enchilada sauce and chicken stock. KEEP LIQUID. DO NOT DRAIN. Pull chicken out, let cool then dice it up or shred it and put back in the liquid. Then add everything else except tortillas. Cook on medium until everything is hot. Yes, it is that simple!

We like to serve this with this flour tortillas and yellow rice.
