I know there are plenty of tortilla soups posted here on zaar. I was looking for one that did NOT use canned chicken brother, so I came up with my own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put chicken in a large stock pot with water.
  2. Slice onion in the eighths, peel and cut carrots and celery into 1/2 inch pieces (or as desired) add to pot.
  3. Add garlic, spices and bouillon to pot and cook for approximately 1 hour or until chicken is tender (you can add more bouillon if necessary).
  4. Remove chicken from pot and when cool enough shred the chicken.
  5. Add canned tomatoes, corn and black beans to broth and simmer for 30 more minutes.
  6. Add chicken and cook until heated.
  7. To serve, place tortilla chips on bottom of the bowl covered with shredded cheese and cover with soup.
