So we haven’t shared a recipe in awhile. Mostly because every time we create something awesome we don’t have measurements. We just sorta make it happen. Even this recipe won’t have precise measurements but ballpark ones. I find with soups I just kind of go for it.
On Saturday we went out with family for my 30th birthday. I wanted soup so I ordered the soup of the day not really knowing what it was. Turns out it was tortilla soup. Normally I would have skipped this since tortillas are made with gains but I went for it anyways living wildly. I am glad I did because it gave me inspiration to make my own soup! So here is a rough estimate of a recipe for this delicious soup!
- 8 cups of chicken stock (I make my own with left over bones from whole chickens)
- 2 boneless chicken breasts
- 1 can of diced tomatoes (mine was 398ml)
- 2 tbsp of fresh chopped cilantro
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Heat stock over medium/high heat and add chicken breasts. Cook for 15-20 minutes making sure they are cooked all the way through. They should easily shred apart.
- Remove chicken breast and cut/shred them into small pieces.
- Add dice tomatoes and chicken back to pot.
- Add fresh cilantro and cook for 10 minutes.
- Add salt and pepper to taste
Depending on your stock you may need to add more flavour. You can use fresh garlic (or garlic powder), parsley, oregano, basil, or cayenne depending on what you’re looking for.
