Makes 4 or 5 servings.


1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice

1 can (10 ounces) red or green enchilada sauce

2 medium-size onions, chopped

1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 cups water

1 can (14.5 ounces) chicken or vegetable broth

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chile powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 bay leaf

3/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked thoroughly in gently simmering water, drained and shredded

1 can (10 ounces) Mexican corn, drained

8 yellow or white soft corn tortillas

3 tablespoons light olive oil




Finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Sour cream (thinned with a few tablespoons milk) or crema Mexicana

Sliced avocado

Sprigs fresh cilantro


To prepare soup: In crockpot, combine tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onions, chiles, garlic, cilantro, water, broth, cumin, chile powder, salt, pepper, bay leaf and oregano. Cover. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.


To finish soup: Add shredded chicken and corn. Cover. Cook on low for 1 hour. Discard bay leaf.


To prepare tortillas: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with oil. Using knife, cut tortillas into 2 1/2-by-1-inch strips. Spread tortilla strips on parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until crisp but not browned, turning once halfway through baking.


To serve: Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle each serving with tortilla strips and grated cheese. Top with 1 tablespoon sour cream, a few slices of avocado and cilantro sprigs.




3 tablespoons oil

2 ½ to 3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into roughly 1-inch pieces

1 very large red onion, peeled and chopped

1 large red pepper, seeded and chopped

2 jalapeno peppers, chopped

5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

Two (14.5-oz.) cans Mexican stewed tomatoes or canned, diced tomatoes

Two (4-oz.) cans chopped green chiles

1 tablespoon chile powder

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

Kosher salt and black pepper to taste (between ½ to 1 teaspoon of each)


Optional: 1 large can pinto or red kidney beans, drained and rinsed


In a large sauté pan or skillet, heat the oil over medium high to high heat until hot. When hot, saute the chicken with the red onion, red pepper, jalapeno peppers and garlic until the onion and peppers are soft, about 5 to 8 minutes.


Transfer the chicken mixture to a slow cooker and add all the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or up to 8 hours.


You can serve this with rice. I like to have my chili over large corn chips with shredded cheese, spicy picante sauce, guacamole and sour cream.


This recipe will serve 2 to 3 guys during a football game — or 6 normal people.
