Wait, I lie - we did have some of that chicken over rice one afternoon. So good!
I wanted to participate with the cooking club, Deb’s Souper Sunday and British Isles Friday so I thought, why not make a Nigella Lawson recipe and tweek the ingredients from her quesadillas. This is basically her quesadilla recipe dumped into a pot and made into soup. Nigella is one of my favorite British chefs and I'm sure I'll be revisiting her cookbooks soon.
Nigella's Tortilla Soup
(with my adaptions)
Leftover chicken chili meat
Broth - the amount is to your liking, some like it very soupy/brothy
Chopped onion and pepper
Basil, chili powder and salt
Sauté the onions and peppers. Once soft simply add shredded chicken, broth and black beans. Season per your taste. This may be served with sliced avocado and tortilla chips. I topped our bowls with sour cream and sliced green onions.
As we are home now, being in the age group where its recommended we stay in and away from people, I am making the most of my time in the kitchen. And leftovers of course. The fewer times I need to restock at the market the better.
I'll leave you with a photo of the soup and the pretty white azalea off the porch. With the news in today's headlines it's nice to focus on something pretty. And delicious!
