Chicken Tortilla Soup

I found a recipe for homemade tortilla strips which had me daydreaming for weeks about a really great chicken tortilla soup I had at a local restaurant not long ago. This was something I’ve never tried at home…the soup or the strips. Feeling adventurous, I announced to the family yesterday what was on our dinner menu for last night and went for it.  I made the soup from memory, adding the cayenne at the very end after scooping out enough chicken and corn to make tacos for my preschoolers. And the strips were a breeze! Bonus: there was a ton leftover and guess what I had for lunch today!

Soup Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 C onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
  • 15 oz. can corn
  • 15 oz can rotelle (medium)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 Tablespoon cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice


  • homemade tortilla strips
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • chopped green onion
  • shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • lime wedges

For soup: Saute onion and garlic in 1 tsp olive oil on stove top in a small skillet. Combine all the soup ingredients in crock pot.  Add onion and garlic. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.  About 30 min – 1 hour before serving time, shred chicken in crock pot. Serve with toppings.
