This hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup is super flavorful, filled with delicious chicken, tomatoes, peppers, black beans and garnished with crispy tortilla chips and avocado.
Since I have not been the nicest thing to come near your waistline these past few days, tempting you with Oatmeal Chocolate-Covered Raisin Cookies and Spicy Hot Chocolate Mocha, today I decided to share a little somethin’ on the lighter side.
If pasta holds the number ONE spot for most requested foods in this house, then soup comes to a very, very close second. And it doesn’t have to be 45 degrees out, or less. Oh no. It can be 95 degrees and my husband will still ask me to make soup.
I can’t blame the dude. I make killer soups. I DO!
This Chicken Tortilla Soup has been on rotation for the past 3 years – we can’t get enough of it!
The collection of soups on my blog isn’t too extensive, and nowhere near the amount of soup recipes that I come up with, but the few that are on here are pretty much the bestest…est.
There’s that Roasted Tomato Soup – INCREDIBLE! Then the Slow Cooker Leek and Potato Soup – which, by the ways, was featured on OPRAH.COM! Boooyah! I also have a Slow Cooker French Onion Soup on here – AHmazing!
All this soup-making has a lot to do with the fact that I love to just sit above the stove and stir on… I also pretend like I’m SO busy with the soup (because I don’t wanna be bothered during that quiet time in the kitchen), thus I stand there even longer not doing anything, just stirring. And enjoying the smell of all the goodness that I’ve put in the pot.
Know what the secret is to a great soup? Homemade stock. That’s all. Chicken stock, or veg stock, or beef stock… so long as you made it. That’s the key. Ask your mom. I bet you 500 BUCKS (internetS money) she will agree.
And, without further ado, I present to you comfort food in a bowl. Rock on!
