Ingredients

  • 2 cans cream of potato soup (10 ounces each)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup (10 ounces each)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and green chiles (10 ounces each)
  • 2 cups chopped or shredded chicken
  • 1 (4 ounce) can green chiles
  • 3 large flour tortillas cut into strips 1/2-inch x 2-inches
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Add all cans of soups, milk, and chicken broth to a large stockpot. Heat to steaming over medium heat.
  • Add corn, chicken, diced tomatoes and green chiles, green chiles, and tortilla strips to soup mixture, and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
  • Add cheese, cumin, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until melted. 
  • Serve warm topped with crushed tortilla strips, pico de gallo, or with a warm piece of crusty bread.

Notes

 
  • Top it with crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, fresh cilantro, or pico de gallo and serve with a warm, buttery, crusty bread.
  • This soup can be made ahead. Just store in a container with a lid in the refrigerator, for up to 3-7 days, until ready to eat!
  • Freezer Directions: To freeze, allow soup to cool to room temperature. Place in a freezer container with a lid or in a gallon freezer bag. Seal, and place in the freezer. It can be stored for up to a month in a standing freezer, or 3-6 months in a deep freezer.
