RECIPE: Chicken Tortilla Soup (so easy!)

This is a mock-Max & Erma's Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe that I got online. Really fast to throw it together, and delicious! Got a lot of compliments when I served it to my hubby's friends. I used low fat/fat free canned soups where I could.  Here's the recipe with my changes:

Chicken Tortilla Soup

1 onion, chopped
1 can  Healthy Request cream of chicken (I used 98% fat free soups where I could)
1 can Healthy Request cream of mushroom
1 can Healthy Request cream of celery
1 can fiesta nacho cheese soup (or if you can't find that, you can use cheddar cheese soup)
1 quart of chicken broth
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup salsa
1 small can diced green chiles
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (it's way better if you take the time to shred them, instead of chop them)

Add all ingredients to a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer one hour. Top with tortilla chips, avocado, sour cream, salsa, etc.
Makes 8 servings.
