Can Can Tortilla Soup Recipe

Got cans on the pantry shelf? While everyone doesn’t have the space for a full-blown storage room, most have at least a few cans of oft-used items. Canned chicken or turkey is another time-saver that is often stored for quick sandwich fillings or casseroles. For those interested in putting dinners together quickly, dehydrated onion flakes are a must, and eliminate the need to chop onions. Can Can Chicken Tortilla Soup, a delicious, slightly spicy, creamy soup reminiscent of that served at a popular chain restaurant, uses canned soups, as well as tomatoes and green chilies, salsa, canned chicken, and a few basic spices. It can be put together quickly, and is especially convenient since everything is mixed in the slow cooker. Although slow cooking helps bring out the flavors of the ingredients and can be made without supervision, the soup can also be simmered on the stovetop.
If there is chicken from the Poached Chicken Module or Slow Cooker Turkey Breast Module, either can be substituted for the canned chicken. Fresh onions may also be used instead of the dehydrated onion flakes, but it will take extra time to chop them. For those who don’t want to bother frying fresh tortilla strips, crushed packaged tortilla chips may be substituted.
