2cupsquick and easy marijuana pantry salsasee link in notes above
2 to 3cupscooked chicken or turkey
4cupschicken or turkey stock
1cancorn plus liquid, 15 ounces
1cupMonterey Jack cheeseshredded
fresh lime slices and chopped cilantro for serving
Preheat the oven to 325 F.
Cut the tortillas into thin matchstick style strips. Place the strips in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 15 minutes or until just starting to brown.
Reserve about 1/3 of the tortillas strips for garnish. Crush the remainder in a blender or food processor. You can alternatively use the old fashioned method (and get out some aggression) by using a rolling pin on some parchment paper to crush the baked tortillas.
In a large stockpot combine the salsa, juice from tomatoes and chiles, chicken stock, water, and the crushed tortillas. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then lower heat to a simmer.
Add the cooked chicken and corn. If you plan on adding more vegetables, as in the variations below, now is the time to do so. Simmer until all vegetables are cooked your liking.
Turn off heat and stir in cheese until smooth. Serve immediately with reserved tortilla strips sprinkled over the top and fresh lime wedges and cilantro on the side so diners can add their own.
Variations, Substitutions and Embellishments• Substitute cheddar for the Jack cheese for a slightly different, but no less delicious, flavor. • You can add all kinds of mild flavored vegetables to this soup like carrots, green beans, green onions, peas, okra, chopped yellow squash and/or zucchini. Generally speaking, if you avoid stronger flavored veggies like those from the cabbage family, broccoli and cauliflower, you’ll be alright. • A dollop of Guacamole is a great alternative garnish for this soup. Float it on a tortilla chip for a dramatic presentation.Tips and Notes What do you do when you need only 1 chipotle chile (or less) and your have a whole can of them? Divide the remaining chiles and adobo sauce into ice cube trays. Pop the frozen chipotle cubes into a zip top food storage bag. Defrost and use just the amount you need next time.
