Prep time

Hearty warm soups in cold weather are my favorite meals. Chicken tortilla soup is so easy to make and very fast. I use leftover rotisserie chicken so I cook even less! You can make your own tortilla chips, too, just as fast! This is a one-pot meal if you use store-bought tortilla chips! Enjoy this filling soup full of love.
Recipe type: Soup, Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine: Latin
Serves: 6
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Cooking spray or oil spray
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14-oz can diced tomato
  • 1 small can (4 oz) diced green chilies (use any level of heat you want from mild to medium to hot)
  • 1 can reduced sodium black beans, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 8 oz shredded chicken (I used leftover rotisserie chicken)
  • 2 oz shredded Kraft fat-free cheddar cheese
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro, avocado & hot sauce to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400° bake. Chop the onion and garlic. Over medium heat, spray a Dutch oven or pot with cooking oil. Sauté the garlic and onions for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, tomatoes, green chilies, black beans, corn, and shredded chicken to the soup. Add salt to taste.
  3. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 15 minutes to soak up the flavors.
  4. While the soup is cooking, make the chips. Using a pizza cutter, slice the tortillas into thin strips. Place them on a tinfoil-lined baking dish (for simple clean up) and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove the chips from the oven.
  5. Spoon the soup into a bowl. Sprinkle cheese over the soup. Add tortilla chips. You can also serve with chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, and hot sauce as desired. Have a great fiesta!
