easy chicken tortilla soup...made with love

I am very excited to post about a little something my hubby did. He made dinner! He didn't just make dinner...he planned it all out...got the recipe and even met me at the grocery store after work to get all of the ingredients while I grocery shopped for the week. I love him. This recipe was delicious...and knowing he did this out of pure sweetness made it even better.

I have talked about Justin some, I have mentioned our wonderful life together, but I haven't mentioned just what kind of man I'm married to. This is a guy that persevered through my many "no's" and "I don't have the same feelings" kind of talks to get to this point. When we moved on from our Elementary school crush on each other (yes, we met in Kindergarten) and let the years turn our relationship into "just friends", he came back, pursuing me in college in a way that would make any girl's heart melt when they heard the whole story. (I'm talking flowers on Valentine's day when we weren't even dating.) I love this man with all my heart. He is my best friend (our romance blossomed out of this friendship) and he is my strength on days I feel I have none left. He rubs my back even though I ask him a million times a week and he is my encourager. His faith encourages mine and he loves until he has nothing else to give.

Now that you know a little more about this guy....check out what he made for dinner. Chicken Tortilla Soup.....yummmm.

Want this recipe?! Simple and delicious.

What you need:
-2 boneless chicken breasts
-1 can diced tomatoes
-1 can chick broth
-1 can cream of corn
-1/2 packet of Bloomer's Chili Powder (or any chili powder will do)
-2 to 3 shakes of garlic powder

For soup dressings:
-Shredded Monterrey Jack/Cheddar Cheese (or any shredded cheese of your liking)
-Sour Cream (we use lite...just as yummy)
-Tortilla Chips (to crumble into your soup)
-Salsa (Justin loves to dump some of it in his bowl)

To make:
-Boil defrosted chicken 30 minutes
-Remove chicken and tear into pieces
-Drain broth...save for later use on something else if you wish
-In same pot you boiled chicken...add tomatoes, 1/2 can of the chicken broth, 1/2 can of water, garlic powder and chili powder. Simmer 15 minutes.
-Add 1/2 can of chicken broth and cream of corn. Simmer 15-20 minutes longer.
*This makes about 5-6 bowls.

Dress with goodies and enjoy!

(Giving credit where credit is due. This recipe was passed down by Justin's best friend's mom.)
