Makes: 8 bowls
This is a filling, healthy and delicious soup. My family loves it and it is requested once a week.
shredded chicken (a rotisserie from the grocery store works great)
onion cut into small pieces
cilantro cut into small pieces
serroano pepper chopped
black beans drained
corn tortillas or tortilla chips
Mix all of the ingredients (except for tortillas) into a large crock pot and set on low. Leave for 8 hours stirring it once about every 2 hours. You can make this as spicy or as mild as you like by using different peppers (jalapeno pepper or none at all for milder and habanero for hotter) and by using mild or hot enchilada sauce.
Crumble tortilla chips on top or make your own tortilla strips by spraying cooking oil on both sides of a corn tortilla and cutting them into strips with a pizza cutter. Then place in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
