Family Friendly Meal: Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Today’s post is for my little sister. I told her about my amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe and knew it would be one worth sharing.

I absolutely love this recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup because it can be cooked over stove top or in the crockpot, which ever is easier for you.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ingredients: 

4 1/2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
3/4 cup chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp paprika
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast **
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (topping)
Shredded Cheese
Corn Tortilla Chips

**If you are cooking it on the stove top, cook the chicken ahead of time. If it is in the crockpot to cook all day, it can be raw.

Stove Top Directions:

Pour chicken broth, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and chicken in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Add black beans and corn. Let it simmer for 30 minutes so that the flavor can be absorbed by the chicken.

When ready to serve top with fresh cilantro, shredded cheese, and tortilla chips.

Crockpot Directions: 

Put chicken broth, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, raw chicken, corn, and black beans into the crockpot. Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours. Soup is ready when chicken is done.

When ready to serve top with fresh cilantro, shredded cheese, and tortilla chips.

This is a family favorite in our house. Hope you enjoy!
