READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

JJ's fiery hot soup, made fresh and ready in minutes. Johnny has been known to add leftover rice to the soup also. ;)

This was absolutely delicious but had both DH and I sucking wind! I will definitely make this again but halve the amount of chiles in chipotle sauce. I think I would also like to make it again without chicken and with rice so that my vegetarian son can eat it. Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and cubed chicken, cooking for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add cilantro and tortillas and cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. (the tortillas will break up and dissolve, this is normal).
  3. Add the chicken stock, rotel tomatoes, chipolte peppers with sauce, chopped jalapenos, and bay leaf and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, and add seasonings, beans and corn (and rice if using). Let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf and serve with garnishes.
