i made seven cents & chicken tortilla soup recipe you can freeze!

i had a great experience in wallyworld today. with coupons in hand and a little planning... i was able to get 5 items FREE... and if that wasn't enough...walk out with .07 cents extra!
here's a snap of the products i came home with: 1 smithfield bacon (it's BLT time here in michigan, ya know!)m, 2 klondike ice cream bars, 1 glade soy candle and 1 glade essential package of vanilla candles!
well, then i sauntered by redbox... feeling sort of cocky with the money i saved... and thought we deserved a saturday dvd... so i checked out "the life of bees." have you seen it? i hear it's great!



over the next few days, i'll be posting a few soup recipes... that you can freeze! i did. i added various end-of-the-garden vegetables for extra oooooomph! the one i'll share tonight is excellent! It's CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP! (i also served herbal beer bread in place of the chips and sour cream.)
1 tsp. olive oil
1 c. chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, mince
2 c. shredded chicken
1 c. frozen corn (i used fresh)
1/4 c. dry white wine
1 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 (14.25oz) can no salt added chicken broth fat free
1 (14.5 oz) can diced peeled tomatoes undrained
1 (10.75 oz) can condensed reduced fat reduced sodium tomato soup
1 1/4 c. of crushed salted baked tortilla chips
1/2 c. fat free sour cream
Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. add onion and garlic: saute for 2 mintues. stir in chicken and next 9 ingredients (chicken through tomato soup): bring to a boil. reduce heat and simmer one hour.
to freeze: ladle soup into family sized rotions, into freezer containers.
to reheat: reheat from defrosted or frozen, in a covered pot. ladle into bowls and top with tortilla chips and sour cream.
