I am a sucker for tortilla soup. It is my absolute favorite!!!!!
So today I thought I would give you my recipe and pass on the love to your family.
Here are the ingredients
– half red onion, chopped
– bunch of cilantro
– 2 chicken breast or precooked chicken either rotisserie or TJ’s grilled chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken and only used the white meat)
– 1 avocado
– 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
– 2 cans rotel
– 4 TBSP tomato paste
– 60 or so ounces chicken broth
– cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder
– sour cream, optional
– your favorite brand of tortilla chips
Let’s get started.
Put your soup pot over the stove on med heat.
Add some extra virgin olive oil, about 3 TBSP.
Add 1/2 red onion, chopped and let it saute for a minute
Add 1 tsp each of cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder (use less chili powder if you want it mild, my recipe has a little zip to it)
Add half the bunch of cilantro, chopped
Add the two cans of rotel tomatoes
Add your precooked chicken, shredded
Add 4 TBSP of tomato paste
The smell in your kitchen will be divine at this point.
Add the chicken stock and bring to a low boil.
Turn off the heat and start preparing your add ins. 🙂
Grate some sharp cheddar cheese, about 2 cups worth.
Chop up some more cilantro
Slice and chop the avocado.
Ladle the soup in the bowl, add avocado, a dollop of sour cream (if you choose), sprinkling of cheddar cheese, and some cilantro on top.
I crunch up my chips and put them in the soup while I eat. It’s just the best soup on earth!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Cheers!!!!
