Tortilla Soup

But, to be honest, we leave out the tortilla chips a lot. =0)

This soup mix is for a gift jar...but we like it so much I keep the mix in the pantry for a quick dinner.  On a rushed night, dumping a bunch of things into a pot to simmer for 20 minutes is my kind of dinner.  

2T. chichen bouillon granules
2t. lemonade powder with sugar
1t. lemon pepper
1t. dried cilantro leaves
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. salt (I usually leave this out)
1/4 c. dried minced onions (I use 2 T.)

1c. rice
1 10 oz. can chicken
1 14.5 oz can tomatoes (I like Hunt's Fire Roasted or something with green chilies)

Add everything to a pot with 10c. water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.  Serve with crushed chips at the bottom of the bowl.  Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado, name it.  YUM!
