How to Make SAVORY CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. Stew the whole chicken in a large stock pot in one box of the broth and the packet of taco seasoning. When it is starting to fall of the bone, drain chicken into a collander reserving the broth in a second pot. After the chicken cools, pull out all the bones and skin. Set aside.


    In a pan, sautee frozen veggies in olive oil.

    In your second pot, add the veggies, the packet of black beans, 1/2 jar of the salsa, the cumin and the chicken and the second box of chicken broth. Let simmer for about an hour.

    Serve in large bowls with a large dollop of sour cream, grated cheese and then garnish with crushed tortilla chips or tortilla strips.

    As a variation, you can add a cup steamed yellow rice in the soup to add more texture.


    *** do not substitute brands or it won't be as good. :-)
