Hope's Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Hope Vaillancourt


I found this recipe one evening when I was rummaging through the cupboards for something to eat and grabbed a can of Rosarita refried beans and noticed a delicious-sounding recipe on the back. I whipped this up within an hour and added even more stuff to it. My family & I were hooked with the first bite. Even some of my sisters who swore they would never try it, ended up trying it and they ABSOLUTELY love it too! I have added quite a FEW things to make this soup even BETTER! Perfect on a cold evening. Enjoy!!! Serves 16 people at 3 cups per serving. (weight watchers 9 points per serving)

  • 1Add water to a large stockpot and place on burner and heat at medium-high heat.
  • 2As the water heats, cut chicken into thin slices (its easiest to do this when the chicken is still partially frozen). Drop raw, sliced chicken into water.
  • 3Once water has come to a boil, add the chicken bouillon and stir to dissolve.
  • 4Once chicken has fully cooked, add package of spanish rice and cook according to package (for heat instructions and time, usually about 7 minutes).
  • 5Once rice is cooked, turn heat back up to medium high heat and add can of tomato sauce, all of the spices, sugar and cans of tomatoes & green chilies to pot of soup. Mix well.
  • 6Bring to a soft boil and add can of refried beans, one can at a time and mix well to dissolve beans into broth to form a creamy consistency.
  • 7Once refried beans are evenly mixed with the broth, add corn last for an additional 5 minutes or until corn is heated.
  • 8Serve in bowls and sprinkle with shredded cheese and top with generous amounts of crushed tortilla chips! Enjoy and try to keep from going back for seconds :p
