This is a nice, hearty soup for a cold, winter's day. Add some sour cream, shredded cheese and tortilla chips or Mexican cornbread and you'll have a meal fit for a king! Leftover rotisserie chicken is great in this, too.

How to Make Chunky Tortilla Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Add EVOO to a skillet and heat. Add chopped onions and saute about 5 minutes, add garlic and cook just until tender, do not burn or it will be bitter. Add chicken breasts to a large pot and boil chicken breasts in salted water until tender. Remove chicken from liquid and reserve the liquid. Chunk or shred chicken, whichever you prefer. Add back to liquid; add onions and garlic and remainder of ingredients. Simmer until desired consistency. You may have to add a can or so of chicken broth. I always have more on hand if I need to add it, but I do like to use the broth first that I've cooked my chicken in. NOTE: While cooking your chicken, season the liquid as you prefer with salt, pepper, etc. We watch our sodium intake so I don't add much salt, only what is already in the canned veggies, unless I really need it.

    When ready to serve, top with your favorites - sour cream, shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack, green chilies, tortilla chips, etc.
