Chicken Corn Tortellini Soup

My husband really liked this soup!  I made it with Barilla Dried Cheese Tortellini; it’s shelf-ready and very flavorful.  Aldi's has very good dried tortellini too, and cheaper.   If you can’t find that, use fresh or frozen tortellini.  I also use some Cream of Mushroom Soup Frozen Mix; I’m spoiled since Myrna introduced me to that recipe.
I also used home-canned chicken; you can use leftover cooked chicken or turkey or perhaps even diced ham, to use it up!  Another suggestion is to substitute canned tuna and condensed cream of broccoli soup for a more pantry-ready soup.  Every version is good.
We enjoyed it with basic muffins and a fruit for dessert.
