Chicken Tortilla Soup
We have had some serious cold weather in Birmingham recently, as has most of the country. I don't know about y'all, but I crave hot soups and comfort foods when it is cold. This Chicken Tortilla Soup is an easy dinner that will be sure to warm you up!

· ½ Cup of Salsa Verde
· 2 teaspoons ground cumin
· 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
· 2 cans great northern beans, drained, divided
