Delicious Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Delicious Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Tonight I made this amazing Mexican chicken tortilla soup recipe I thought I’d share for you. Super healthy and simple too. Great for these chilly autumn or cold winter evenings.

It could be made either in a cast iron Dutch oven, or simply load a crockpot in the morning and let it cook all day (which is what I did). I LOVE coming home to the smell of a beautiful soup that’s been cooking all day.

Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1  4 oz can diced green chilies
  • 1 seeded & chopped jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1  14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1  15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 lb chicken cooked, white boneless cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • crushed tortilla chips (or strips)
  • shredded cheddar cheese

If using a crockpot or slowcooker, simply load all ingredients except cilantro, lime juice, tortilla strips & cheese into the crock.  The chicken can be raw.  Cook on low 8-10 hours.  Before serving add lime juice & cilantro, then top with tortilla strips & cheddar cheese.

If using a saucepan or Dutch oven, saute the olive oil with onion & garlic until tender.  Add the green chilies, jalapeno pepper and cumin.  Add next the chicken broth & tomatoes and sauce then bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and allow to simmer 15 minutes.
