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

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.

  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.
