Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

We have a Mexican restaurant in my hometown that makes this soup and when I made this the first time I though YES I finally know their recipe.  Well not really their exact recipe, but wow does it sure taste like theirs!  Do you see me smiling! Thank goodness I did not have to beg for their recipe!

I must say I found a recipe on Pinterest a few years back and made a few changes to the original recipe.  In order to get the amazing flavor the first thing you will want to do is make Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken. This chicken is the key to the soup! The recipe makes enough chicken for a meal, like perhaps Creamy Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas, and you will have enough left over to make this soup too! WIN two meals!!

This soup is ready in 30 minutes – ANOTHER WIN!! Yes and it is full of flavor and you don’t have to cook it all day! Now since the chicken does need a little time. Make it ahead of time or  get it started in the morning! Shred your chicken and you are ready for an amazing soup!

You need 64 ounces of chicken broth, 2 cups of shredded chicken, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of Rotel Original (diced tomatoes with green chili’s), 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 2 teaspoons chili powder, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 1 can of drained corn (or frozen corn works great too), 1 to 1 1/2 cup long grain white rice, juice of 1 lime, and cilantro to taste. All goes into a large pot, bring to a boil.
