Easy Tortilla Soup
Chicken tortilla soup is one of my favorite things to order when we go out for Mexican food. This is a great, healthier, and easy version you can make for yourself at home.
Homemade tortilla chips:
In a large pot, heat two tablespoons olive oil over medium heat.
Add in onions, garlic, and cilantro and sauté until fragrant
Add chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, corn, chilies and lime juice and stir
Add in remaining spices and then add in chicken breasts
Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, lower heat and let simmer for 10 minutes
Remove chicken breasts from soup and let rest for 10 minutes, then shred with fork
Put shredded chicken back in soup and let simmer an additional 10 minutes
Serve each bowl with tortilla chip strips and enjoy!
Cut corn tortillas into thin strips. Cutting them very thin makes them extra crisp!
Toss with olive oil and salt to coat
Bake in 400F oven for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
