very good recipe. I did thinsg a little different but it turned out just as delicious. I cooked the cilantro, tortilla strips, onion, and garlic in a frying pan. After 2-3 minutes I added the diced tomatoes. Once it came to a boil, I added that and the rest of the ingrediants to a crock pot and had that heating for a few hours. I also used a pre-made roasted chicken from the grocery store and it was excellent. I will be making this again soon.
This one is great! Reminds me of home (Texas.) I added a can of corn too. If you're from Texas you might want to add more chili powder or cayenne to kick it up a notch, I followed the recipe exactly and my kids loved it. This one is a keeper.
This did turn out good in the end, but I reduced the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. and added an extra cup of chicken broth because it was really spicy for my tastes.
This was really good. I added some leftover rice with the chicken. Yummy!
Thanks LorenLou! Excellent and easy recipe! I had a house full of teenage boys, my husband and myself - we all devoured this! We all loved the flavors and the heartiness of this soup. It is not TOO heavy, it has the right consistency, not too soupy or too thick, and the spice combinations are perfect. I added a bit of roasted chipotle powder to my own bowl because I like it spicy. For those that don't want too much heat, this is just right as it is. Onto my "make again" list it goes! Thanks!
This was my first attempt at Chicken Tortilla Soup, so I am not sure how it is supposed to taste. I will say that this recipe went into my keepers pile very quickly. I did make a few changes (more like additions) with jalapenos (i like it hot) and corn. I, too, reduced the oil in half and used 14 oz of fire roasted diced tomatoes with 14 oz of spicy salsa. I also used red and green peppers. Finally, I just baked my garnishing tortillas. They were great -- crunchy and healthier!
Delicious! We're enjoying this right now. We both love it.
This soup was delicious! I used a whole chicken and the broth from that. I also added 1/2 cup of celery finely chopped and a red and green bell pepper cut in strips to the soup...I garnished with cheese, chips, avocado, and fresh cilantro. It was a huge hit. My family loved it so much...this will definitely be something we will make a lot!
