This hearty soup will tickle your taste buds with bold spicy flavors. You can spice it up or dress it down. Either way, I promise you will make it again and again. I know I will. Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to taste. ~Robynne

How to Make Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup~Robynne

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy soup pot on med-high heat. Add chicken a batch at a time (do not overcrowd) seasoning and browning as you go. Remove from heat and set chicken aside as it browns.
  2. After the chicken is removed, you will be left with the oil and all the yummy seasonings. You may need to add a little more olive oil to cook the veggies.
  3. Add to oil, the onions, carrots, garlic, celery, and bell peppers. Cook about 10 minutes or until cooked down. Stir often.
  4. Add chipotle, cumin, and Mrs. Dash. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, corn, black beans, and chopped cilantro. I added the chicken and beef base at this point. Bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  7. Add cooked chicken back into the soup. Check spices and adjust as needed. Simmer until ready to serve.
  8. Add oil to a pan. Fry tortillas strips a little at a time until brown and crispy. Drain on a paper towel lined plate. Salt while hot.
  9. Serve soup in bowls. Top with tortilla strips. Garnish with any or all garnishes. I let each family member add their favorite toppings. Enjoy!
