Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe Great Soup for a crowd

Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe is a great soup to serve a large group. It is also eating healthy!  I spoke in Clinton, LA (had so MUCH FUN) for 100 people. Of course, we served lunch from my cookbooks for healthy cooking.  Everyone loved the menu because all the recipes were healthy easy recipes!  They served my Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe in my Gulf Coast cookbook/  I had two bowls between signing books because I even think this recipe is so good. If you know me I love healthy cooking and never want to miss a meal.  I had to share this recipe with you on my healthy cooking blog.

Best of white chili and tortilla soup

The reason this recipe is one of the best Chicken Tortilla Soup as it is a cross between a white chili and tortilla soup–best of both worlds!  This recipe is a thicker, chunkier soup with corn and beans.  I always serve my soup with condiments.  I always top it with  cheese, avocados, and tortilla strips.  When you can’t decide what to prepare for dinner, pick up a rotisserie chicken and you probably have the other ingredients in your pantry.  Serve for the Super Bowl Game!

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe from Holly Clegg trim&TERRIFIC Gulf Coast Favorites

Leftover chicken (Rotisserie chicken), southwestern seasonings and canned broth quickly turn into a mouth-watering one-pot meal. A cross between White Chicken Chili and Tortilla Soup, this chunky chicken tortilla soup recipe is filled with beans, corn, and southwestern flair.

4 (6-8-inch) flour tortillas, cut into 1/4-inch strips
1 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips (4 cups cooked)
1 (28-ounce) can chopped tomatoes with juice
6 cups fat-free chicken broth
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
1 (16-ounce) package frozen corn
1 (15 1/2-ounce) can Great Northern or navy white beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 cup chopped green onions

One thought on “My Favorite Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

  1. We received so many compliments on the Chicken Tortilla Soup we served at the luncheon. Realized the next day that the avocadoes were still in a bag in the closet! The soup is delicious with or without some additions. It was so good I fixed it for a casual supper meal for 22 women on Friday night. It was a big hit and so was the Red Velvet Cake Trifle. Thanks Holly for some wonderful suggestions at the luncheon in Clinton on Wednesday. Looking forward to you being in Clinton again.
