Goode Goodness: Tortilla Soup

I was in the mood for some soup and so I decided to use up some frozen chicken I had left over and make a version of Tortilla Soup

So I started with my onion and chopped her up

Threw a little EVOO in the stock pot

Then in she went

And you know my rule about my onions, they are lonely without some garlic

So mince 'em up and toss 'em in

While they glossed up, I grabbed my chicken from the other day and ran my knife through it

Then I tossed the chicken in and added a carton of broth

Then I grabbed the BEST tomatoes in the world. I have loved Red Gold tomatoes since I was a child.

And their tomato sauce...Yummo!!!

Now I had to grab my favorite can opener --and let me tell you, this is the best can opener out there. I have noticed that their is an epidemic of inferior can openers out there. Please save yourself and your loved ones from this travesty. This baby leaves no sharp edges and never skips a beat.

So, open your cans and dump 'em baby.

Then add 2 cups frozen corn

And then some Kosher salt

Then it is time to spice things up...

Add some chili powder

Then some cumin. I heart cumin...

Finish'er up with some hot sauce and put some in a bowl

Now grab your chips

And crunch some up

Add some shredded cheese

and a Dollop of Daisy

Perfection for a cold winter's day
