'Tis the Season for Soup - McAlister's Chicken Tortilla Soup

Sissy gave me this recipe, and although I have never had it personally, it sounds delicious! I may just have to make it soon!

McAllister’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 onion, chopped

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons all purpose flour

3 cans (14 ounces each) chicken broth

4 cups half & half

1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup

1 cup salsa

1 can (15 ounces) creamed corn

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, coked

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 packet (2.7 ounces) fajita seasoning

3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

To serve:

16 ounces tortilla chips

8 ounces shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

In a large pot over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in butter for 5 minutes.

Add flour and stir well; cook for 1 minute more.

Add broth and half & half. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low. Add the soup, salsa, corn, chicken, cumin, seasoning and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Stir and continue to heat for 15 minutes.

Serve with chips, cheese and cilantro.
