Chicken Tortilla Soup

ChickenTortillaSoupSimpleRecipe Title

I’m a big fan of chicken tortilla soup. I love the medley of spices and flavors all topped with cheese and tortilla strips, I mean really – what could be better?! I decided to try making it on my own and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The best part was that it was so simple to make, I just let the crockpot do all the cooking. At the end of the day, we had a delicious warm soup to enjoy and had plenty of left overs for the next day.

Cooking Time: 4 hours (Crock-pot on High)


  • 5 Cups of Chicken broth
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 Can black beans, drained and rinsed (or dark kidney beans)
  • 1 Cup of corn (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 Serano chili minced
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tbs of minced garlic
  • 2 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 lbs cooked shredded chicken breasts (cooked with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning and salt & pepper)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime (juice squeezed)
  • Garlic salt (for taste)
  • Pepper (for taste)
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Tortilla Chips/Strips (and extra for topping)
  • Monterrey Jack shredded cheese

Chicken Tortilla Soup Ingredients

  3. Stir ingredients together occasionally

Chicken Tortilla Soup Spices

TIPS: Don’t over season with salt as chicken broth contains salt and garlic salt is potent. The tortilla chips added in the end will also add a touch of salt. Be sure to include the tortilla chips prior to serving and stir. Include extra tortilla chips to top and/or top with avocado as well.

    I was so excited to see this in my feed because soup season is totally right around the corner. Since my fiance is very bored with my usual soups, I’ll have to give this one a whirl! I’ll be taking your advice and adding avocado on the top as well. (; Have a great weekend Vanessa!
