Aaron and Lindsay’s Chicken Tortilla Soup Extravaganza
A little spicy and a lot delicious!
Recipe type: Main Dishes, Soup
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 2-3 tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ bag frozen corn
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 lime (one extra for garnish)
  • 1 handful cilantro, chopped
  • 4-5 corn tortillas, cut into strips
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • cayenne pepper
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • cheddar or jack cheese, shredded
  • sour cream
  1. Sautee onion in olive oil until soft, then add garlic, green onions, cayenne, chili powder, and cumin. Sautee until fragrant (a minute or two). Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Add tomatoes, corn, black beans.
  2. Grill up chicken spiced with cayenne, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. (You can also pan-fry it, but it won’t add the smokiness that the bbq does). Cut up or shred chicken and add it to the soup. Try the soup and add more seasonings according to taste, if needed. Add lime juice and cilantro.
  3. In large fry pan over medium-high heat, crisp up tortilla strips. Add salt. You may do this with oil or cooking spray. (For a shortcut, use tortilla chips instead).
  4. Serve soup garnished with avocado, cheese, sour cream, tortilla strips, fresh cilantro, and a lime wedge.
