Good basic Chicken Tortilla Soup that I've been making for years. I use chicken stock rather then broth for more flavor. I also add a 7 oz can of Salsa Verda, and use green enchilada sauce rather then red. I made it yesterday and it was the first time that I used broken tortilla chips rather then going through the hassle with the corn tortillas~~worked great! I did also add black beans for the first time, super!!
It's a tasty soup. I did add black beans and topped with crushed tortilla chip and cheese. I can say I am still on the hunt for a really good chicken tortilla soup. This to me was more tomato soup with a little bit of Mexican influence.
Delicious soup!! I only made two changes. I didn't have any enchilada sauce so I added 1 tablespoon of Lawry's Enchilada Sauce mix powder. Also, I like my corn tortillias torn up into bits and put into the soup. The taste of the broth was spot-on for a great chicken tortilla soup. Healthy and satisfying. I will definitely make this again and again.
Terrific meal!!!!! I only used 1 lb chicken and had to use picante sauce instead of enchilada (I was out). I added a can of kidney beans for some extra filling and it was gobbled up by my spice-hating 7 year old and mother as well as by myself and my dad, who enjoy spices. This worked out so well! Thanks for posting what will now be a regular recipe around here!
This soup has great flavor, but is less hearty than I wanted. Now, I always add a can of black beans and a cup of rice in the beginning and the consistency is perfect. Sometimes I use frozen chicken breasts, cook for 6-8 hours on low, come home, shred the chicken and cook for another 30 minutes to an hour. Thanks for posting, this is something we make at least once a month, that freezes very well for lunches.
Parmesan Cheese....? hmmm
I have made this only one time and I cooked it on the stove instead of the crock pot as called out(didn't have enough time)and it was excellent and super easy!!! I will definitely make this again. It was a little spicy for the kids, but there is always grilled cheese for them. :)
I made this soup after getting a days notice that I needed to cater a small film set but couldn't have red meat. It was a cold weekend so I adopted this recipe a little and turned it into a "chicken chili" sort of dish. I added some crushed red pepper for some bite, some extra chicken, and a can each of red and black beans. Topped with shredded cheddar, fresh cilantro, and some hint of lime tortila chips, this one was a huge hit! It smelled so good and tasted even better! I also used frozen uncooked chicken breast and cooked on high heat overnight to fit my schedule and it worked out perfect! Thanks so much!
Excellent flavor! It's great to start in the morning before work and come home to the delicious smell in the evening! I also add avocado and pico de gallo to spice it up a bid. It's a great recipe that even my finicky 6 year old likes! Thanks so much!!
Excellent soup! Very flavorful and easy to make. I also topped mine with avocado. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe.
