I love Mcallister's tortilla soup and had to find the recipe. Found this posted on another website, looks good.

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, saute the garlic and onion in the butter or margarine for 5 minutes.
  2. Add flour and stir well, cooking for 1 minute more.
  3. Add the broth and half-and-half. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Add the soup, salsa, corn, chicken, cumin, fajita seasoning and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Stir and continue to heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Crumble tortilla chips into individual bowls, add 1/2 ounce shredded cheese to each bowl and ladle in soup. Top each bowl with more crumbled chips, remaining 1/2 ounce cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro, few chopped green onions and serve.

This recipe is good but not even close to McAllister's. It is too milky with all that Half And Half. I also had to add a lot more spice to make it taste pretty good.

This has been one of my new favorites! It is close to McAllister's but better. I prefer the creamier version. Sorry McAllister's but you've lost a customer. It was even approved by my picky 20 month old daughter. Great recipe!
