Chicken Tortilla Soup #SundaySupper

Submit to StumbleUpon

Soup weather is here.  I am actually excited about this, because I have so many soup recipes I want to try this year.  And after today, that list is going to grow.  This week Susan from The Girl in the Little Kitchen is hosting a  “Dishes That Keep You Warm” event.  So don’t miss all the great soul warming dishes at the end of this post.

I haven’t made Chicken Tortilla Soup in forever.  I made it years ago, loved it, and quickly proceeded to never make it again.  Makes perfect sense, right?  Ok, well maybe not, but I was determined to change that this year.  So when this event came up, this was the first thing I thought of.  It is a little spicy, super adaptable to what you like, and full of toppings (one of my favorite parts of soup).

I garnished mine with avocado, red onion, tortilla strips, cilantro and lime wedges.  The lime adds a great freshness, and a little tartness to the soup.  Sour cream would be great if you don’t like a lot of heat, to help cool it down.  I am not a fan of black beans, so I left that part out, but feel free to add a can of black beans to the soups.  Or bell peppers if that is what you like.  Really, anything goes here!  I have the leftovers in the freezer right now, can’t wait for a cool night to bring it out again.

Now here’s that long list of soul warming dishes I told you about! I also hope you’ll join us for our weekly twitter chat tonight at 7pm EST!

  4. Great soup with a nice spicy kick. I’ve been a fan of Rotel tomatoes for a long time and I am sure they add the right amount of spicy to the soup.

  39. I love chicken tortilla soup! It’s one of my top 5 soups and your version looks great! Thanks for joining us this week!

  52. Lora @cakeduchess

    I haven’t had this soup in ages…so flavorful and comforting on a chilly fall evening:)

  53. What a great meal for a cold day!

  54. My soup making is in high gear too! Can’t wait to give this one a try, it looks fabulous!

  55. It’s so pretty! I’m totally saving this to make for mom, once I figure out what to swap for Rotel tomatoes since I can’t get them here!

    • A can of regular diced tomatoes will work just great – you will just want to add some jalapenos or other form of spice. I hope you get to try it!

  56. I love this soup but have never attempted making it at home :) You might have inspired me :) Looks fantastic!

  57. I do that all the time too. Make a fantastic dish and never make it agian. It’s probably because we want to put new content into the blog. It’s difficult to make a dish knowing it’s not going on the blog. I topping the soup with avacado!
