When it comes to cooking for my big family, this recipe is a favorite of everyone – toddler to adult! You won’t believe how quick and easy this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe is to cook. It’s my go-to for last minute company, or a night when it’s suddenly dinner time before I’ve considered a dinner plan.
When it comes to cooking for my family, easy recipes are always my first choice!
Not only is it super simple to cook, this Chicken Tortilla Soup tastes as good as any I’ve ever had at a restaurant!
This recipe uses precooked chicken. While whatever leftover chicken you have on hand will do, this Garlic Lime Marinaded Chicken is the absolute best in this soup. When I make Garlic Lime Chicken, I always grill at least a whole flat to be sure I have leftovers.
If you don’t have any Spicy Lime Chicken on hand, don’t worry. You can easily use just about any leftover chicken, from store-bought rotisserie chicken, to baked chicken breasts, or even roast chicken leftovers.
Once the soup is hot, simply pour it into bowls and serve with a handful of crushed tortilla chips sprinkled on top. You can also have your family’s favorite fixings available to personalize the soup. I usually set out bowls of sour cream, shredded cheese, extra cilantro, avocado slices, and of course heaping bowls of tortilla chips.
