Tortellini Soup

It has been hard to get in the mood to cook soup this Winter.
Because it really has not been Winter here in Georgia.
Last week it felt like Spring with temperatures in the 70's.

Well, forget about the warm weather - I want to make soup!
Afterall, don't people go to restuarants in the summer

and order soup and sandwich? Of course they do!

Tortellini Soup
(with Chicken)

1 package of Cheese Tortellini
1 cup chicken ( cooked and chopped)
1 cup of green beans
1 8 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 /2 of an 8 oz can of Rotel
( only use whole can if you want soup to be spicy)
1 package of dry French onion soup mix
3- 4 cups chicken broth ( low sodium)
2 cups water
1 tbs basil
pinch of sugar

** 1 cup corn ( optional)
Also, if you would prefer you can add
ground beef ( cooked) instead of chicken.

Cook the chicken and chop into small pieces.
Then place all ingrediants, except the tortellini, into a crock pot or large pot.
Cook on low for two hours.
Add the tortellini 20 minutes prior to serving.

This is a quick, easy soup that taste great!

We are red meat eaters so I substituted ground beef and beef broth for the chicken and it was eaten right up. Very fast and easy. Sarah
