Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of my favorite comfort foods! Chicken breasts, corn, beans, and other delicious ingredients are simmered in a tomato base. As with a classic tortilla soup recipe, tortilla strips are fried crisp and add the perfect crunch. Top this delicious soup with crispy homemade tortilla strips, avocado, lime, and cilantro for the perfect Mexican-inspired soup!

Add your own favorite toppings, a bit of cotija cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo, and sour cream are all great additions! I like to create a little topping bar when I serve this soup so everyone can add what they love.

Warmly spiced and satisfying, this chicken soup comes together super fast thanks to the ultimate easy dinner party trick: a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Make a big soup pot full to last the week.

Tortilla Soup is super satisfying, pretty healthy, quick and very inexpensive—what more can we ask for in a weeknight dinner? If you’re looking for a vegetarian tortilla soup, go ahead and skip the chicken. The flavor will be just as delicious.
