Here's a link to the recipe for this soup, which I made tonight.  http://thestir.cafemom.com/food_party/113618/chicken_tortilla_soup_the_best?fb_ref=post_bottom&fb_source=profile_multiline

It's absolutely delicious, full of flavor, and although baking the chicken and then creating the soup are 2 steps, they are fairly uncomplicated and the highest level of skill required was dicing an onion and a red pepper.

Here's what I varied from the original recipe:
  • I added more garlic as she recommended
  • Added a scant teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Used a can of peite diced tomatoes instead of a tomato puree.
  • Simmered it 30 minutes with the lid ON, not in an open pot (I was worried it would cook down too much).
I'm going to serve it tomorrow night with sliced avocado, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and low-fat sour cream.

Since I seem to be on a roll with "cheater" recipes, here's another one that is absolutely delicious, easy, and of course (in the vein of cheater recipes) uses a premade and/or frozen item as a main ingredient.  I feel NO guilt cheating with this one, since it's so good.  Taken from an ancient Jewish cookbook that was compiled and sold as a fundraiser for a home for the elderly in my state.  This recipe can be easily halved.  It is best served hot out of the oven.  Some of my family members like to sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar over theirs.

Ingredients
  • 12 frozen blintzes (2 boxes), either cheese or fruit blintzes, or one box of each
  • 16 ounce container of sour cream (light or no-fat is fine)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tablespooons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 lb butter or margarine (lowfat spread is fine too)
Directions
  • Preheat over to 350 F
  • Using a baking dish big enough to allow all 12 blintzes to fit in one layer, melt butter and pour into the bottom of baking dish so that it coats the bottom
  • Lay blintzes in 1 layer in pan on top of butter
  • Thoroughly mix all other ingredients together and pour evenly over blintzes
  • Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown
