Recipe by Brenda Craig, Texas Brew Products
1 cup Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, Mild
4 quarts of water
4 large skinned split chicken breast or an equal amount of chicken tenders.
24 oz. tomatoes, diced (canned or fresh, excellent if using fresh to roast them the grill first)
10 oz. can tomatoes and green chilies
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 large onion, chopped (excellent if sautéed until caramelized before adding to stock)
8 to 10 chicken bouillon cubes
3 Tbsp. cumin
1 bunch cilantro, rinsed, patted dry, fine chopped stems and all
1 Tbsp. fajita seasoning
¾ cup white rice (optional)
In a large stew pot add water, chicken, tomatoes and green chilies (mild, regular or hot), tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chopped onion, bouillon cubes, cumin, fajita seasoning, and Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa. Bring to a boil and simmer till chicken is tender. Turn off heat and remove chicken to cool.
When chicken has cooled, cut up or tear into strips and add back into your stew pot. Add rice. Bring to a simmer and cook until rice is tender, approx. 20 minutes.
Assess if you need to add extra water (soup stock should not be thick). If more water is necessary add extra Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, cumin, fajita seasoning or bullion to taste and simmer approx. 5 more minutes.
Turn off heat and add chopped cilantro. The flavor of the cilantro is best when added last and left to wilt in the warm soup. Remove from heat and serve. Follow serving instructions below.
Serve soup hot with shredded cheese and tortilla chips. Dip or add chips to soup. Optional cheeses are: mild cheddar, Colby-Jack, or Mexican four cheeses packs which is an excellent option for a more authentic taste.
