I believe this is what I had in the fridge:
Leftover Fajita Chicken
Leftover peppers & onions from the fajitas
Tomatoes from the garden
two ears of corn
garden salsa peppers from the garden
can of Ro-tel w/cilantro
Somehow I made very good soup. I froze most of it for later in the season. I did blanch the tomatoes to create my diced tomatoes, minus the skins, which is what took most of the time. I had some ambition to make my own chicken stock, but wussed out & decided to clean and reorganize my kitchen cabinets.
I saved one cup of the soup for me to have for lunch the day I made it. Since I was wiping down the fridge, I came across a little leftover mexi-rice. So I placed that in the bottom of my soup bowl & topped it with the simmering tortilla soup. Sprinkle with cheese and serve. It was so good! It was like a Mexican Rice Soup or something.
