Tortilla Soup – Good for a Rainy Day

I can’t think of a better rainy day recipe as the 2nd of three storm systems continues to drop so much rain that our pool is almost overflowing! This is one of those “shopping in my pantry” meals – so I don’t have to drive to the store in nasty, wet and windy weather. This is also an easy dish for anyone living on their own. I have even sent a box with the recipe and ingredients (no chicken) to my son at college and his roommates were so happy!

Tortilla Soup

1  15-oz can black beans
1  15-oz can white corn
1  15-oz can southwest style tomatoes
1  15-oz can chicken broth
2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded
sea salt and pepper to taste
Optional Garnish:
shredded cheese
tortilla strips
sour cream
fresh cilantro

Mix soup ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with your favorite toppings.
You can substitute regular diced tomatoes for the southwest diced tomatoes and then add Mexican seasoning to taste.
