Easy Tasty Chicken Tortilla Soup: "What's missing in here? It is called 'Tortilla Soup' but no tortillas?" Had to chuckle at preparing this recipe that there were no tortillas (corn flour chip or otherwise) in the ingredient list so lazy me just tossed some chips on at the end. I've just noticed too that I completely missed the cream of chicken soup for which I feel bad for even reviewing this b/c I think w/ or w/o it the soup's flavor and texture would change quite a bit. (IMHO I'm glad I forgot it.) Random rant - I dislike recipes w/o nice even serving sizes that I can calculate down by half. What's w/ the 5? So I eyeballed the ingredient list and scaled it to the best of my poor mathematically-challenged brain. Sauted the onion w/ bell pepper (no banana) and garlic cloves (yuck garlic powder) and tossed everything in the crock pot b4 leaving for work. Left on low for about 8 hrs. and it was good but just too mild for our taste. After adding extra hot sauce cheese cilantro (fresh) and of course TORTILLA chips it was a good soup that I'll make again; the best parts were the chick peas and the fact that my 3-year old demolished her whole bowl.
This was very easy. I read the review that said it was more than five servings so I pretty much cut the recipe in half for me my husband and son. There was still enough for me to bring a bowl for lunch! I made a few changes to use what I had on hand. I did 1.5c water chicken bullion 1 can cream of chicken 1 can of chicken 1 can of black beans frozen corn sauted onions 1 can of Rotel tomatoes Adobo seasoning Cumin Garlic and Pepper to taste. Topped with sour cream cheese avacado and grilled tortillas. I would have liked it a little more spice but I didn't want it to be too hot for my son so just added a little heat to the individual bowls. Great Recipe.
I made it according to the recipe but with the following changes because of items on hand. I added ground turkey breast instead of the canned chicken. Much lower in sodium. I didn't have canned tomatoes w/chilies so I used plain chunked tomatoes and added some chipotle chili pepper and red chili pepper to taste. I also used corn instead of hominy and added Basmati rice. My family likes a very hearty soup so this helped give it more substance. Flavor is excellent! Thank you for the recipe!
The combination of ingredients gives this soup an extra something that the other recipes don't have. I didn't have black beans when I made this so I subbed with kidney beans. I also subbed canned corn for the hominy and did not add the banana pepper. I think it would be even better as written. The only change I will keep in the future is subbing all natural chicken broth for the water and bullion cubes. Cuts down on the salt and tastes even better. Overall a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This is an easy recipe to follow and it makes a tasty soup. I substituted red beans for the garbanzo beans and I left out the cream of chicken soup and instead of the 4 cups of water I used chicken broth. It turned our delish! I thought it to be a tad bit spicy with the chili powder cumin and hot sauce so I just used salt and pepper with the cumin. Great soup!
Very tasty and simple to make! I love this recipe! It makes a ton of soup. I took it to a cookout and my friends were impressed that I made it. I add real garlic and half a fresh chopped jalepeno for a bolder flavor. It takes about 25 minutes to put together and I let it simmer for 2 hours. I highly recommend it for a go-to soup recipe!
