Fall equals soup season! I fell in love with chicken tortilla soup on the last trip we were on and love making this yummy comfort food at home now.

Enjoy this super easy recipe!


2 TBSP butter 

1/2 onion, diced

2 stalks celery, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

2 jalepenos, minced

1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic

8 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 Tbsp Knorr chicken powder

1 cup frozen corn

1 tsp cumin

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 can diced tomatoes w/ green chiles, 14.5 oz

2 cups cooked chicken, shredded

1 lime, juiced

Garnish with: avocado, diced cheddar cheese, grated green onions, diced cilantro, chopped tortilla strips, sour cream 


Melt butter in a stock pot on medium heat and saute onions, carrots, celery, jalapenos until onions are translucent. Add garlic during the last minute of saute time. Add chicken broth, corn, canned tomatoes & chiles, cumin, salt, and pepper to the pot. Boil gently until all veggies are soft, about 15-20 minutes. After veggies are cooked, add cooked chicken & lime juice. Add more salt to taste if needed. Before serving, garnish with avocado, cheese, green onions, cilantro, and tortilla strips.
