This soup was fantastic! I used two large boneless, uncooked chicken breasts cut into bite-size chunks, sprinkled them with salt, pepper, cayenne and cumin - threw that in while I satueed the veggies (to which I added some celery). Also added in some rinsed black beans and substituted parsley for cilantro (bf HATES it), and used diced tomatoes with chilies. I brought everything up to a boil and then kept it at a simmer for about 3 hours and it thickened up beautifully. I cut remaining tortillas into thick strips which I fried in vegetable oil and sprinkled with sea salt, cumin and a little cayenne - super yummy on top of the soup with some sour cream, mexican blend cheese and a squeeze of lime. This recipes is amazing as is, and can withstand substitutions and additions beautifully to accomodate your own personal preferences.
This is a great recipe! It's simple and the flavor is wonderful! I knew I was going to have a hectic day so I made it in the crockpot. I boiled my chicken and then shredded it. I followed step 2 in a fry pan and then put all ingredients in my crock pot on low for 6 hours. I only used 4 tbsp oil and I added a can of corn and a can of pinto beans. My MIL stopped by after it had cooked only 3 hours and had a small bowl and she thought is was good then even though the tortillas had not completely broken down. My family loved it and I have to agree with them- it tasted wonderful!
I am a huge fan of tortilla soup and I have been looking for a good recipe. I tried another recipe on this website and it wasn't very good. THIS recipe, however, was sooo tasty! I just added corn and black beans and we all loved it!
This soup recipe is DELICIOUS. I'm a New Yorker from Texas and have been searching for years for a great, authentic tortilla soup recipe?This is IT!
Hubby and I love this. I like the idea of adding the corn tortillas in the soup. We add cheese and sour cream on top.
This is a very simple, easy but yet extremely good chicken tortilla soup! It was my first attempt at making Chicken Tortilla soup and this recipe is a KEEPER!!! It can be easily modified to your liking, which I have done. I feel that my changes didn't alter the recipe too much so I am giving it a five star. I followed the ingredients listed but added one green diced pepper and one can of sweet corn (drained). Instead of using one big can of diced tomatoes, I changed it to 1 small can of petite diced tomatoes and 1 can of pureed tomatoes (we aren't crazy about eating a lot of pieces of tomatoes, even when they are small). I also pureed my soup with an handheld stick blender (diced tomatoes, drained sweet corn and chicken were added AFTER I blended the soup, didn't want those to be blended/pureed. When using a stick blender into the soup, it turns the corn tortilla into more of a soup thickener and not everyone likes soggy corn tortillas, I know I don't so I just pureed the soup and it turns it thick enough that the chicken and corn doesn't go at the bottom of the bowl, so you get a mouth full of all the goodness in each bite!!! :) I wanted to add black beans too but didn't have any on hand, it was delicious without and it would have been good with it as well. Oh, I also used my Ninja chopper to dice my chicken into small bits, because I love the texture of bits of chicken in a soup instead of big chucks. Add the chicken separately in bowls if you have someone that doesn't like chicken in your family, that is more of a vegetarian (like my oldest daughter that isn't crazy about chicken).
yum! Easy simple perfect! I didn't even have enough cumin, less than half, but still wonderful! I used half the cayenne but would have liked all was hoping kids would eat the soup but they weren't a fan anyway so next time I may just make for adults :) I didn't try the tortilla part of the recipe but may someday, I had a bag of tortilla stips as a topping. thanks for a keeper!
OMG!! For a year my husband has been ordering chicken tortilla soup at a local restaurant and paying $4 for a small bowl - way too much in my opinion. I finally took the time to find a recipe online and made it this weekend. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a can of rinsed black beans and a can of drained whole kennel corn. Made it on Sunday afternoon and put in the fridge - ate it for dinner on Monday without any of the fancy garnish because frankly I didn't have any of it in the house and I was too tired and hungry to go to the grocery store after work. Again - OMG!! So very good - spicy but not overpowering. So glad that this was the chicken tortilla recipe that I found and chose to make. It will definitely be made many times in my house - maybe next time with the garnish!! Thank you LorenLou.
The title is spot on. This is the BEST Chicken Tortilla soup! I've made it several times now and everyone loves it. I usually use shredded rotisserie chicken and add a can of drained black beans. Easy to make and sooo good!
this was amazing! I followed the recipe almost exactly except i added kidney beans... delicious!!
