Tortilla Soup

My friend, Heather, brought this to us as we adjusting to being new parents. It is absolutely delicious and tastes like tortilla soup from a restaurant. It tasted like Sothern California to me.


3 cups rotisserie chicken, taken off the bone
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 can Rotel tomatoes (10 oz) - I used 'original' but you can use 'mild' as well
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
4 c. water
2 beef bouillon 
2 chicken bouillon
2 cans tomato soup
3 more cups of water
2 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1 T. chili powder


Saute onions and garlic in some butter in the bottom of your pot.

Add the rest of the ingredients (except the chicken) in the order listed.

Simmer 1 hour. 

Add chicken.

Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese, limes.

Well, we didn't quite make it as the Robertson Family Singers: let's see how we do with cooking...
