Tortilla Soup

Firstly, I must apologize for not having a photograph of this lovely meal. I was not expecting it to be half as good as it was, thus no picture. This soup was nothing short of outstanding.

This could not be a simpler, more delicious, satisfying and healthy meal!

You'll need a large saucepan and these following ingredients:
2 containers of chicken broth (low sodium if desired)

1 large bottle of mild chunky salsa

1 can of black beans, drained

1 box of yellow rice

White meat from 1 rotisserie chicken, cut into small bite-sized pieces

In saucepan add the broth, salsa and beans and cook over high heat. As soon as soup starts to simmer turn it to low or medium heat. Meanwhile, cut chicken in to small pieces to toss into the soup and cook the rice per the directions on the box (in another pan.) When rice is cooked add to the soup and voila! A fabulous soup in no time!

Garnish with tortilla strips and serve immediately.

(Great as a leftover if there is any left over!) This served a family of 5 as a meal with a little bit leftover
