How to Make Chicken Tortilla Soup


  • 1Combine cilantro salsa, chicken broth and sliced chicken in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce to low heat. Cook soup 10 min.
  • 2While soup is cooking, pour oil in a heavy skillet and heat over high heat for 3 min. Place a handful of tortilla strips into the oil and fry into crisp ( about 1 min). Drain strips on paper towels.

    Note: Instead of frying strips spread out on cookie sheet and lightly spray with cooking spray and bake till lightly brown and crisp.
  • 3Top each bowl of soup with fried tortilla chips and 1/4 cup shredded jalapeno jack cheese. For added flavor add 3 slices of avocado to each bowl of soup.
