Chicken Tortilla Soup


*This is one of my favorite, easy recipes to make for the family. Even the kids will eat it. I just make sure to use mild salsa to keep it "cool" enough for their tastes. It also freezes well. ENJOY!
2 cans black beans (may sub 1 can red beans)
1 30 oz can tomato sauce
1 16 oz can chopped tomato w/ jalapenos
2 small cans roasted green chilies
1 cup salsa
1 can corn
2-4 chicken breasts
*tortilla chips, sour cream, avocado and cheese for toppings
Put all ingredients into a large pot or crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours. (I prefer 6 hrs, chicken shreds more easily)
You may even use frozen chicken.
Pull out chicken at end and shred with 2 forks.
Put back into soup pot and simmer 15 more minutes if desired. (not necessary)
