The Easiest and Best Chicken Tortilla Soup
45 mins (prep 5, cooking 40)
17 ingredients
6-8 servings
Our family favorite chicken tortilla soup! Muy delicioso--very delicious--and so simple, quick, and easy to make using pantry items. Less than 45 minutes from start to finish, so a great weeknight meal. I sometimes add a can of petite diced tomatoes plus an extra can of corn to s-t-r-e-t-c-h this soup to feed a few extra guests, or you can simply double the recipe to feed a large group. Season to taste with salt & pepper, cumin and chili powder (I use a pinch of each). Don't skip the fresh garnishes of lime, avocado, cilantro, shredded cheese and sour cream---they really make this soup. This soup makes great leftovers. Enjoy!
