This chicken tortilla soup is really tasty. It has been a favorite for a long time. It works as an evening meal or a weekend meal when we don’t feel like doing a ton of cooking. The only work is pulling the meat from a deli chicken and sauteing some onions. The soup can be pulled together in 30 minutes.

We got the idea from a recipe that I found in Cooking Light. I can’t find the recipe that we started with on their site. Looking at it now I am a bit surprised that I printed the recipe we started with in 2002. Luckily it has been in a plastic page cover. Over time we adjusted the spices to our taste, and in this case we actually doubled them compared to the original. That doesn’t mean that our version is overpowering. It is just more interesting.

This soup is kid compatible in our house. We do give him a bit more sour cream if he wants it.

Notes

A cooked deli chicken makes about 3 cups of shredded chicken.

We use a slow cooker that has a a cast aluminum insert. That way we don’t have to use one pan for the onions, the insert just moves from the stove to the slow cooker.
