Snow Day Food : Tortilla Soup & Cheesy Cornbread

This is what we made for our Snow Day Food and it was delicious! I also made some Cheesy Cornbread but it was not good b.c I thought baking soda and baking powder were interchangeable ... ( they're not).
I used some fresh cilantro and lime juice as a garnish to my soup and also think its better with Shredded Mexican cheese instead of cheddar. I made about half that fried tortilla strips suggested serving and it was plenty!
PS I got this recipe from THIS BLOG and it is a great cooking blog!

Tortilla Soup


  1. 32 oz chicken broth
  2. 2 cans diced tomatoes
  3. 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis (rotel)
  4. 6 oz tomato paste
  5. 2 cups frozen corn
  6. 2 cups cooked chicken
  7. 1 tsp. garlic powder
  8. 1/2 tsp. cumin
  9. 1/8 tsp. chili powder
  10. 10 corn tortillas
  11. 1 BIG bag Mexican Cheese Shredded
  12. Cilantro ( Fresh)
  13. Limes


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker. Bring it to a boil, then turn it down to simmer while you fix the tortilla strips. Or cook on high in the slow cooker for 4-5 hours.
  2. For the tortilla strips, cut a stack of 10 tortillas in half. Then slice them into 1/4″ slices. Fry in hot oil in a skillet and drain on paper towels. Serve the soup with the tortilla strips and shredded cheese.
