Tortilla Soup


We’ve  had a few requests for this soup so not to keep you waiting any longer . . . here it is and believe me this is worth the wait.   This soup is one of our family’s favorite things to eat.  It’s just so good, not too spicy, and so tasty- perfect on a cold winter day, but light enough to eat int he summer.  Don’t just take my word for it – this is one you need to make yourself – and why not its super easy.  Let us know how you like it! 


 Tortilla Soup


1 small onion (diced)                         
2-3 large chicken breasts
1 tablespoon oil
2 garlic cloves, minced                       
1 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoons dry oregano                              
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons cumin                                         
½ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder                                 
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce                  
6 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 – 2 cups frozen corn

For Topping

tortilla strips or chips
cheddar cheese
sour cream (optional)



In large pot, sauté onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon hot oil.  Add spices, then liquids.



Add chicken (raw) and simmer 1-2 hours, or until chicken falls apart and will shred. 



Add corn just before serving. 



Top with tortilla strips (or just crush tortilla chips) and cheese; add sour cream and any other favorites such as onions, tomatoes, and avocado.  My family likes to roll up tortillas and dip in the soup!

  1. You people are so lucky to have this recipe now. You have no idea. Kyra made this for us 8 yrs ago and it’s been the only tortilla soup in our lives since. We like to add a can of pinto beans to it and we also top it with cilantro. She’s right, so yummy and so easy!

  2. I just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. This recipe is great. I made it quicker by omitting spices and do taco seasoning packs. My husband is very picky and he even enjoyed it!!
