This is a copycat recipe for Rumbi Island Grill's Bahama Mama's Tortilla Soup. Savory chicken broth with a hint of coconut milk, diced chicken breast, tomatoes, carrots, mozzarella tortilla strips, and a lime or lemon wedge.

This is almost EXACTLY like the soup at Rumbi. However, Rumbi's soup has cilantro added somewhere near the end. I made a pot of this and my husband and I ate it ALL. I'm making more today. I also omitted the hot pepper sauce. I will save myself a lot of money with this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill for medium heat. Grill chicken breasts for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove from the grill, and cut into chunks.
  2. In a large pot, combine the chicken, water, bouillon and carrot. Season with allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and garlic. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Pour in the tomato, coconut milk and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, but do not boil.
  3. Ladle into bowls, and top with shredded mozzarella cheese and tortilla strips. Squeeze juice onto soup from lime wedges.
