This Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup is the final recipe in the set of 3, from the preview of my new cookbook, Express Lane Cooking!
By now I hope you’ve checked out the first two (Fire-Roasted Chicken Enchiladas and Saucy Shredded Chicken Tacos), and ordered or picked up a copy of the book!
I love this soup guys!
It’s made in one pot and the flavors are outta this world. My kids gobble this up every time I make it. It’s especially perfect for when that Fall weather starts to creep in. I spent this last week up in Northern Utah and there were nights when the temperatures dropped into the 40’s! We all had a big bowl of this soup and it was just so comforting!
I hope you guys have enjoyed the preview of my book and got a better idea of how I turn 5 ingredients into 3 different meals!

- 1 tsp onion powder
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 3 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 1/2 cups grilled corn kernels, from about 2 ears of corn

- 4 corn tortillas, cut into thin strips
- 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

- Blend the diced tomatoes, garlic and onion powder in a blender until smooth, then pour into a large Dutch oven and cook on medium-high heat until the liquid has reduced to half, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the chicken broth, chicken and corn, and then season with the cumin and chili powder. Taste the soup and then season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine the 3 teaspoons of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water and then stir into the soup. Bring the soup to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Divide the tortilla strips among the serving bowls, ladle in the soup and top with cheese and any other optional garnish you desire.
Your recipes looked so good and fast that I had to order your cookbook. Thanks for easy meal planning.
Oh my goodness, thank you so much Gloria! 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!
This is a great way to repurpose leftover pulled chicken in a tasty and fun way. And with only a few weeks left of summer corn, we can’t wait to make this soon!
Thanks Felicia! 🙂
