Chicken Tortilla Soup

With the weather finally getting cooler we can start bringing out the cold weather foods! The Mr. doesn't care much for soups so it's very rare that I come across a recipe that he enjoys. I few years ago I came across a delicious recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup. I've been making it ever since and have tweaked it just a tad to our liking.

It's perfect for the cooler temps, Mexican night or just  a quick weeknight meal.


the original recipe can be found here

Ingredients:

2  boxes of chicken broth [64 oz total]
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 Taco seasoning packet
1 small onion-chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can diced green chiles
shredded chicken, [rotisserie]

Directions:

Combine the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and taco seasoning in a pot over medium heat. Whisk together. 

Add onion, tomatoes, beans, corn and chiles. Stir until blended. 

Shred the rotisserie chicken and add to the soup mixture. Stir. [You can most definitely make and shred your own chicken. I prefer rotisserie because of the convenience and it gives an added flavor to the soup.]

Cook for about 20-30 minutes over medium heat while stirring often. 

And there you have it! It's a super easy and quick soup with loads of flavor! Husband and kid approved at our house! 

We typically add shredded cheese and tortilla chips to ours. If we have avocados we add that as well. 


Yum! Definitely a favorite for these cool weather nights! Let me know if you try it and what you think in the comments below. Enjoy!!!
