easy chicken tortilla soup

It's been such a long time since I've written a blog post, I'm not even sure I remember how. But I made my favorite soup recipe tonight and wanted to share, and this seemed like a quick and easy way to get it out there. A friend shared this recipe with me last fall, so I don't know the origin. But what I love about it is that it is super quick to throw together and one that my entire family enjoys. Believe me, that is a rare thing with six kids!! You could also make it healthier by using fresh instead of canned.

So here it is:
1 package of chicken tenderloins (about 1-1/2 to 2#)
1 jar mild salsa
1 can of beans, any variety (I prefer Bush's Chili Beans, but black beans are good too.)
1 can of creamed corn
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1 packet of taco or fajita seasoning (I use Wildtree Fajita seasoning)
1 cup of chicken broth

Throw it all in a crockpot and cook till the meat is done. Serve with tortilla chips or strips and sour cream if you like.

You can also make this with ground beef (browned) and beef broth instead of chicken. We tend to alternate to mix it up! What's your favorite soup recipe?
