This filling chicken tortilla soup will leave bellies full and happy, and is boyfriend-approved. For a spicier soup add a diced jalapeno to the onions, or a 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Garnish soup with shredded jack cheese, avocado, cilantro, lime slices, and crispy tortilla strips if desired.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottom stockpot; and chicken, cover Dutch oven, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a plate to cool and pour water from Dutch oven into a bowl for later use.

  • Heat olive oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and green bell pepper in the hot oil until onion is soft and translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic to onion mixture; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Mix chicken broth, black beans, Great Northern beans, fire-roasted tomatoes, green chile peppers, chili powder, oregano, cumin, and salt to taste into onion mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover Dutch oven, and simmer until soup flavors blend, about 20 minutes.

  • Remove bone from chicken and discard. Shred chicken meat into small pieces using your hands or a fork. Add chicken and corn to soup; cover Dutch oven and cook until corn is warmed, about 5 minutes.
