TEX-MEX CREAM OF CHICKEN SOUP
Not sure if I got this old recipe from BH&G or from Kraft Foods.
pound ground raw chicken or turkey
cup chopped onion
cloves garlic, minced
10-3/4-ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
7-ounce can whole kernel corn with sweet peppers, drained
medium tomato, chopped (3/4 cup)
4-ounce can diced green chiles, drained
tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro or parsley
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)
Fresh cilantro or parsley (optional)
1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven cook ground chicken or turkey, onion, and garlic until chicken or turkey is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat from pan.
2. Stir in milk, cream of chicken soup, corn, chopped tomato, chili peppers, cilantro or parsley, and ground red pepper. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cheese; cook and stir until cheese melts. Garnish each serving with additional cilantro or parsley, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
