Chicken Tortilla Soup

This recipe does really have tortillas-- you can certainly add them...I just didnt so it would be healthier. I did top it off with a few corn tortilla chips though. I made this soup in a crock pot but, it can be made on the stove cooked at a low temperature.

2 chicken breasts
2/3 cup fresh salsa
1/4 cup tomatilla sauce
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup oil (your choice)
1 medium sized onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 can chicken broth
salt pepper to taste

Place chicken breasts in crock pot and cover with water. Add whole can of chicken broth and turn crock pot on high. Chop onion and garlic and add to pot. Add the remaining ingredients and cover pot. Let cook for 2 hours and taste-- if too spicy then add more water or spice accordingly. Remove chicken, chop and place back in pot. Let cook for another hour and serve. Crumble a few tortilla chips on top and enjoy!
