One of our favorite ways to use our homemade chicken stock is to make Tortilla soup.
- 3 cups of homemade chicken stock
- 2 14.5 oz. can of stewed tomatoes
- 1 garlic clove
- 3 cups of hot salsa
- 4 cups of cooked chicken
- 1 tablespoon of cumin
- 1 cup of cilantro
- 8 oz. of Monterrey Jack cheese (we prefer raw)
- blue tortilla chips
- 1 or 2 fresh lemons
Add cooked chicken, garlic, stewed tomatoes, hot salsa, chicken broth, cumin to crock pot and cook covered on low for 8 hours or so.
Once ready, add to bowl. Sprinkle cilantro, squeeze a half of a fresh lemon, crush up some tortilla chips and shred Monterrey Jack cheese to taste.
We used to make this recipe with store bought chicken stock. It was good. Now, with homemade stock…it is truly fantastic!
