Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Chicken Tortilla Soup is the perfect easy weeknight dinner. Full of shredded chicken, corn, beans, and homemade tortilla strips, this soup is a meal in itself. It’s comforting, hearty, and filling.

What’s even better? Just like our Taco Soup and Beef Chili, this Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe comes together in one pot.

Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup:

Chicken tortilla soup is like a taco in soup form. Its rich tomato and chicken broth pairs perfectly with chunky veggies, shredded chicken, beans and sweet corn.

You can sprinkle some tortilla strips right on top with a healthy handful of cheese, or pair the dish with soft Dinner Rolls.

Tips For Tortilla Soup:

  • Use Leftover Chicken. Have a rotisserie chicken hanging out in your fridge? What about some leftover chicken breasts you don’t know what to do with? You can always use leftover chicken to make a fresh batch of Chicken Tortilla Soup.
  • Bone Broth Makes All The Difference. Use low-sodium bone broth or easily make your own chicken broth.
  • Adjust The Spice. Do you like it spicy? Add some extra jalapeños into the mix.
  • Save Time With Canned Corn And Beans. Speed up the cooking time by using canned corn and beans.
  • Cut Avocado Right Before Serving. To keep your avocado from browning, cut it right before you serve the soup
  • Season To Taste. Depending on the tomatoes and broth you use, you may need to adjust the salt to taste at the end.
Ingredients for the chicken tortilla soup

To Make Crispy Tortilla Strips:

  • Pan Frying: Preheat a pan with 1/4 cup oil over medium-high heat. Cut 8 (6″) corn tortillas into thin strips and fry them in a couple of batches, adding more oil as needed. Remove from the pot and let drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • To Bake: Toss tortilla strips in a bowl with 2 Tbsp oil until well coated. Bake on a cookie sheet in a single layer at 350˚F for 15 minutes.

How To Make Chicken Tortilla Soup:

  1. Place a soup pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil and sautee chopped onion, garlic, and jalapeno until tender.
  2. Add chicken breasts and remaining soup ingredients to the pot. Bring to a boil then simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken to a bowl and shred it with 2 forks. Return chicken to the pot and simmer 5 minutes then add lime juice.
  4. Serve the soup with homemade tortilla strips, chopped avocado, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges.
Step by step of making chicken tortilla soup

Make-Ahead Tip: the broth gets more and more flavorful the longer it marinates in itself. Can you say delicious leftovers? Make a big batch of tortilla soup and eat it for lunch throughout the week.

Serving Chicken Tortilla Soup:

The only thing that makes Chicken Tortilla Soup taste even better are the toppings. These are our favorites:

  • Sour cream
  • Homemade tortilla strips
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Lime wedges
  • Jalapeno, sliced or diced

Storing Leftover Soup:

  • Refrigerator: Store your leftover soup without toppings in an airtight container in the fridge. It should stay fresh for 3-4 days.
  • Freezer: You can also freeze your soup in an airtight container for up to two months. When you are ready to eat it, allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight. Reheat soup by bringing it to a boil in a saucepan.

    Natasha, this chicken tortilla soup is so simple to make and delicious, too. My aunt, whom I credit as the family chef, liked it so much that she asked for the recipe! The only substitution I make is using 20 oz. of diced tomatoes in green chilies vs. 20 oz. crushed tomatoes. It is September and the leaves are changing in Alaska, so I’m thrilled to have this guest-worthy soup back on the menu!

    This was just perfect! I was looking for a simple, uncomplicated chicken tortilla soup to bring to my daughter and family after they had a baby yesterday and this fit the bill! I used all unsalted ingredients and let the spices do the salting. I’ve already shared the recipe with a bunch of friends. It’s a keeper. PS we skipped the tortilla chips – used bagged chips and made corn muffins.

    This was delicious! I normally make soups without a recipe. I decided to follow this recipe nearly 100%. When I go rogue I end up with good results overall but end up with way to much soup. Easy to make . I had all the ingredients including homemade bone broth. I LEFT IT OUT ALL NIGHT! The worst. A rookie mistake but I’m 65 and always set timer to remind me to put in fridge after cooling. I had no ice for an ice bath. Had to toss. Sad .
    So now I have leftover pork loin roast.
    Question is do you think I could make a new batch with the pork? Its tender. Thank you

      Hi Mike, this is normally very flavorful. Did you possibly use more liquid which could water it down and require more seasoning? Also, be sure to season to taste – the type of broth or salt content in canned products can affect how much salt a recipe needs.

    Hi Natasha,
    I’m Mexican but had never had this soup anywhere. I made it a month ago and it was a hit. Turns out my bf says he used to pick some up at BJ’s Restaurant when he was a bachelor and it was his favorite. He says this one is better! He was so excited to come home to it today.

    I added any own touch. I put in half a Serrano pepper because I didn’t have jalapeños. I used left over broth I had on hand. I used a few dashes of Trader Joe’s Citrusy Garlic seasoning, since I don’t have limes and I love the flavor it adds. I didn’t add salt I added tomato-chicken bouillon along with dried cilantro because again -no fresh on hand. It’s a great recipe just the way it is or you can add – few dashes of this or that. Great comfort food! Thank you for sharing this!

      Made this today with 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs because that’s what I had. Everything else I followed exactly. My husband hates beans and my kids hate soup and we all devoured this. Saving this recipe. It hit the spot and was easy and hearty. Cannot wait for my leftovers for lunch all week.

    I just made your soup!! It’s delicious! I can’t believe how simple it is to make. The only variations I made was chicken thighs and I used enchilada sauce instead of crushed tomatoes because I didn’t have any,also added Chipotle pepper and 2 tablespoons of Adobe sauce. I will definitely keep this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I found this recipe about a year ago and it has become one of our winter staple soups, which is amazing since my husband isn’t a fan of anything that sounds remotely Mexican. I do leave out jalapeño because hubby doesn’t appreciate the heat, but this recipe is absolutely amazing. Thick, rich, full of flavor and incredibly easy to make. But today I find myself in quarantine with Omicron and no chicken and will substitute the chicken for some end pieces of beef filet I usually use with stir fry. Wish me luck.

      Congratulations, Kandice! We note that in the recipe, but you can also freeze your soup in an airtight container for up to two months. When ready to eat it, allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight. Reheat soup by bringing it to a boil in a saucepan. I hope this helps!

    This definitely taste better the next day once the flavors settle so I would make it ahead of time, next time. I ate some right after making it and I thought it was too sweet and tasted too much like crushed tomatoes. I didn’t get any other flavors. But I ate some the next day and it was amazing and I could taste more of the other flavors.. The chicken was more tender too. It was delicious!

    My family absolutely LOVES this soup! I’ve made it a few times and each time it gets gobbled up! I love adding all the goodies on top….fresh lime, fresh avacado (I use frozen chunks too when they’re off season), cilantro, jalapenos, sour cream, and did I mention lime! Delicious and even better the next day for lunch.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. Makes a great option for soup rotation in the fall/winter other than chili and chicken noodle soup.

    Fun Side Note – we don’t use fresh jalapenos much except for this recipe. I shop at Aldi and they come about 5 in a bag. I used a total of two for this recipe….one in the soup and the other for fresh topping. While the soup was cooking, I made bacon wrapped cream cheese jalapenos . Popped them in the air fryer for a little bit….and it was a fun appetizer before the soup was ready! Don’t waste those extra jalapenos 😉

    Eating low carb foods, I cannot figure out how a few black beans and a few corn kernels in a serving can add up to 62 grams of carbs. This looks so good but that just doesn’t fit in our eating. What am I missing? I really want to make it. Is that accurate?

    The soup was so easy and so delicious. My chicken breasts were pretty thick so it took a little longer than 25 minutes to get them to where I wanted them to be before shredding. As well, I added a dollop of sour cream just to add a hint of creaminess. I think some half and half would work to. Definitely being added to the recipe book for an easy delicious week night meal. As always, thanks!

    It was snowing a few days ago and my husband and I were craving soup to go with the cold weather. This hit the spot! Incredible recipe!

    I’m a newlywed, and I’ve been learning how to cook through your website and wonderful videos on social media. I never knew how much I would enjoy cooking and trying new recipes! Thank you Natasha for all you do!

    P.S.: My husband’s family is German and I made pork schnitzel for them using your recipe and they absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    This was delicious and very easy. I made it for me and the kids to have for lunch. I dropped out the peppers, but used a 28 oz can of fire roasted crushed tomatoes. My very picky 1 year old actually said, “mmm” when she started eating it! Can’t wait to eat it again for lunch tomorrow! I also used Bona Fide Provisions bone broth, if you haven’t checked them out before, I highly recommend them! Great quality product with a lot of extra nutrients.

      That is the best when kids love what we parents make. That’s so great!

      Hi Lisa, I haven’t experimented with making this in an instant pot because it’s so quick to make on the stovetop. If you try this as an Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup, please let me know how it goes.

    Can I make this in a CrockPot? If so what are the instructions.? I really want to try and make it in a crockpot like the “chicken cream cheese chili”
    I would really like your input/advice.

      Hi Nataly, I think it could be adapted similar to the way the cream cheese chicken chili is but it is so quick that we do it on the stovetop.

    20 oz crushed tomatoes, not 28 oz? Since the link opens to 28 oz jars

      Hi Valerie, 20 oz is correct but I have added 28 oz when that is what I had on hand and just adjusted the seasoning – adding a touch more seasoning.

    I will have to try your version out. A quick suggestion, as a twist, try adding Habanero peppers seeded & diced instead of jalapeno. (caution use gloves when cutting due to juice). My magic number is 7 – 8 peppers. I have been using this recipe as my standard with the habanero mod & 3 diced sweet small sweet peppers. I also changed brands on the Old El Paso ingredients. I use Rio Organic green Chiles, Frontera red enchilada sauce, Pacific low sodium chicken broth, and gtwo 7 oz cans Green Giant mexicorn. The recipe is from Betty Crocker slow cooker recipes if you want to have another recipe to modify/try. I like the slow cooker option so that it frees time.

      I had everything but corn and wanted to use up leftover chicken, so I made this since we are snowed in. I diced a zucchini that I needed to use up (in place of the corn). It was a crowd-pleaser even with my picky eater son! We will have to make this again when we can try it with corn.

    I’ve been a fan since trying to Chicken Marsala recipe! I still use that for hibiscus and birthdays in my family. The tortilla soup was amazing and can’t wait to share it! It was delicious, hearty and a perfectly easy meal after a long week. Thanks again Natasha!
