So last week I had to figure something out for dinner. I wanted something light but that was super flavorful.

I made up my own version of Tortilla Soup.
It worked!

I just put most of it in the Crockpot at lunchtime and then added the rest an hour before we ate.

I can't say that it was too difficult.
I just thought of all the things I would like to eat in a soup and put it in there.

Topped with fresh Cilantro, blue corn chip crumbles and  cheese, it was great..and fresh!

Of course, it had to be in complimentary Fiestaware bowls.

This is what I did:

Put chicken tenderloins in a carton of chicken broth in the crockpot
along with :
S and P
diced tomatoes with green chilis
and some sprigs of cilantro for more flavor

and I let that cook for  4 hours
then an hour before I added
corn and black beans

topped it with fresh cilantro and corn chips and cheese.

It was pretty fabulous, I think.
