This is a wonderful full flavored tortilla soup. The mixture of chipotle in adobo sauce and chili powder gives this soup a great rich flavor. This recipe is from the Food Network Kitchens.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chipotle, chili powder, and salt and cook until the onion softens, about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the corn and cook for 5 minutes more.
  4. Pull the saucepan from the heat and stir in the tomato, chicken, cilantro, and lime juice.
  5. Divide the tortilla chips among 4 warmed bowls, ladle the soup on top, and serve with the lime wedges, if desired.

This was awesome! We loved it. Will definately make again. The only change I made was I used dried cilantro instead of fresh. Thanks made for PAC Fall 07. Lisa
