Monti's Crock Pot Ready Tortilla Soup

This is a simply delicious recipe for a Tex-Mex favorite. To shorten the time, Monti's recipe suggests using pre-cooked chicken (for salads). If you have a Crock Pot in your dorm, this is a great dorm meal!

Monti say, "Many of the ingredients aren't exact, I like to play around with it and season it to my taste. You really can't mess it up. Just go with any peppers you want, and don't make it too chunky, or it turns into to more of a salsa than a soup."

What you need:
Crock Pot
1 medium Yellow Onion
1 medium Green Pepper, chopped
1 medium Red Pepper, chopped (Substitute with a spicier pepper if desired.)
2-3 cloves of Garlic, minced
3 16 ounce cans of Chicken Broth (I've also used beef broth, I just like the chicken better.)
16 ounces of Tomato Paste
1 can of Diced Tomatoes
2 Chicken Breasts, pre-cooked and shredded, (could substitute with beef)
1/4 cup Fresh chopped Cilantro
2 tablespoon Chili Powder (more or less if you like)
Cayenne Pepper (I don't measure this, I just add a little until it gets a good bite to it.)
1 tablespoon Ground Cumin (adjust to taste)
Mixed shredded cheese, I like Kraft Mexican blend
Tortilla chips
Sour Cream

Step 1. Stir in all of the ingredients into a crock pot except the Cilantro, Chips, and Cheese.

Step 2. Cook on medium heat for 2 hours, then add in the cropped cilantro. Cook for another 15 minutes.

Step 3. Crush up the tortilla chips, and add them in.

**Tip** Only do the chips per bowl, they will get soggy if you mix it all together and have leftovers)

Step 4. Top with the cheese and some sour cream.

Enjoy! :)

**Tip** This recipe will work with a large pot as well, just make sure to stir it occasionally, and keep a lid on it. Simmer it on low heat for several hours.
