Coming In:
15 Min

Mexican Tortilla Soup is an unexpected treat when you're looking for a warming way to start your meal. Why, it's even hearty enough for a light meal all by itself or with a salad or quesadillas.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup broken-up baked tortilla chips
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, bell pepper, and garlic and cook about 3 minutes, or until chicken is browned, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in chicken broth, corn, and salsa; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 5 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
  3. Stir in cilantro, ladle into bowls, and serve topped with tortilla chips.

Love this soup. I have made this several times. It is delicious, easy to make and my family loves it.

This is a long standing family favorite.

this is making me upset as I am trying to print receipes and you keep asking me this stuff

I can't wait to try this! I couldn't believe you could make noodles out of tortillas. df

Very good, very similar to Casa Ole's Totilla Soup.

I usually have corn tortillas so I cut them into strips and fry them in a little oil to make my own tortilla chips.

This is family favorite. I add a can of rinsed black beans.

Delicious! Instead of corn, I used black beans. Also, I used the Fresh Gourmet Crispy Jalapeno lightly salted strips instead of tortilla strips. Also topped with avocado.

Thank you for the Nutritional Information. That is a big help for everyone. I can't wait to try this.

My favorite Mexican restaurant always serves this soup with thin strips of flour tortillas added to the soup just before serving. It's a very different result and equally delicious. The soup is also served with wedges of lime to be squeezed into the bowl to your own taste preference; the result is outstanding.

Family loved this recipe. I added chopped avocado to the finished recipe just before serving for added nutrition and interest.

Love this recipe!! It is so easy & quick to make! Husband & daughter loves it too. I did add chopped onion to the recipe. This is a must try. I made nachos to go along with this soup.
