Clever leftovers: Chicken Tortilla Soup

We've got some more leftover roast chicken. I already made Chicken Pot Pie. You know what that means! Time to get creative!

This edition of Clever Leftovers involves chicken tortilla soup. Not just any chicken tortilla soup-- really quick chicken tortilla soup. Like, came home from work late and it's cold and rainy and everyone is hungry quick.

Put a big pot on the stove. Throw in the pot approximately:

2 cups leftover chicken
1 c. frozen corn
1/2 jar salsa (1 c)
2 c. chicken broth
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. garlic powder
crushed tortilla chips

These are all approximate amounts, as almost all leftover-type recipes are. Throw in whatever you've got that you think will taste good.

Let it warm up, then serve with a dollop of sour cream and more tortilla chips.

Makes appx 4 servings.
