This recipe is an absolute hit every time I serve it! People can hardly believe it's a Weight Watchers Recipe! ( from WW Annual Recipes for Success 2000) This recipe is so easy but doesn't taste like it! I never have leftovers.

How To Make chicken tortilla soup or tortilla chile soup

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2
    Spread tortilla strips on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes or until toasted, stirring after 3 minutes. Depending on your oven they may cook faster so be sure to keep an eye on them. Set aside.
  • 3
    Combine chicken and next 8 ingredients in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until chicken is done.
  • 4
    Remove chicken from pan with tongs or slotted spoon. Let cool slightly; shred chicken. (I have tried cubing but shredded is defintely better.) Return shredded chicken to pan;stir well. Cook until heated through. Ladle soup into bowls;top with 1Tbsp sour cream, 1 Tbsp cheese and one fifth of tortilla strips.

    Just a note: This recipe can easily be kicked up with the addition of more jalapenos(besides what is in the canned tomatoes) and/or hot Rotel. ENJOY!
