Chicken Tortilla Soup


"Cheers Mike and Patty! Made this soup for dinner tonight. It's a gray, rainy, cold, day in the Pacific northwest and this soup is so good. So warming and cozy. Goes perfectly with a nice fire in the woodstove. My husband and I both loved it! It will definitely go in the keep file with tbe rest of your recipes! Thank you both for all your time and and effort! Have a wonderful evening!" ~ Becky




First cook down the onions, peppers, and garlic in a large pot.


Then add the seasonings, chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer to cook the chicken through.


Carefully remove the chicken to a large bowl and shred it with a couple forks.


Add the chicken to the pot and simmer to warm it through.


Add oil to a separate wide pot or pan to medium heat. Add the tortilla strips and lightly fry them a few minutes per side, until they become a golden brown. Flip to fry both sides. Remove the fried tortilla strips and set them onto paper towels to drain. Lightly salt them.


Serve the soup into bowls and top with your crispy homemade tortilla strips and other favorite toppings. I like fresh cilantro and lime juice. Boom, done!
