Leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup Casserole

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 35 mins

With all the tortilla soup recipes here on 'Zaar, there must be SOME leftovers. So here's what you do with the leftover soup. No more LEFTOVERS--they're "planned overs." Use the soup as the base for this tasty Mexican casserole.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Pour leftover soup into a large casserole pan.
  3. Dump tortilla chips into the soup, mix well.
  4. Add salsa to soup & chips if the soup isn't very soupy; mix well.
  5. Slather sour cream over the top.
  6. Sprinkle on the olives.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese over the olives.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and casserole is heated through.
  9. OTHER OPTIONS: add some chopped green chilis, cumin, red peppers.
  10. NOTE: My chicken tortilla soup has corn kernels in it -- if your recipe doesn't, try adding some; it really makes a difference.

Very good. I used blue tortilla chips and a avocado slices instead of black olives. Loved it.

I didn't have any left over tortilla soup so I had to improvise and use a canned mexican style soup and doctor it up. I liked it but I think I will try it again when I DO have leftover soup.
