Cold outside Get warm inside.

 My Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Always make a mild soup, each diner can add 'heat' to their taste with garnish.
4  cans corn ~~15.25 ounces each Not creamed corn.
2 cups shredded or diced  leftover chicken
2 cans kidney beans ~~ 15 ounce each
1 tablespoon olive oil
 1 teaspoon or less chili powder (less is better for those that do not like lot of spice)
1/2 cup  diced onion
4  cups chicken broth.
I can stewed tomatoes ~~14.5 ounce  or
Jar Mild  Salsa~~12 or 16 ounces depending on brand.

Cook onion in olive oil on medium  heat in a heavy, at least one gallon size, pan or skillet  until tender.  Add rest of ingredients  and  bring to boil  on medium heat then turn down and slow simmer for 20 minutes.
Serve in bowls with
Crisp  corn tortilla strips
