Summer Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Summer Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I know it’s summer and most people are thinking, “UGH, soup?!” but hear me out, sometimes you just need something simple, delicious, comforting, and makes a good amount. And summer colds are real, and chicken soup is always a cure-all! This soup comes together in no time and I’m sure most people have the goods to get this on the table. I also want to give changes to this recipe to adapt it for your dietary preferences and restrictions. And honesty moment - my youngest daughter HATES soup and pitched quite the fit when I put this on the table but my 6 year old said she loved it and asked to have it for lunch the next day. Make it to have in the freezer, meal prep, or just a simple dinner.


Summer Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

  • 2 chicken breasts or 1-2 cans drained beans (pinto and cannellini beans would be delicious)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 can green chiles, drained

  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes

  • 1 can tomato sauce

  • Toppings : avocado, cilantro, sour cream or cashewgurt, green onions, tortilla chips

- Preheat an oven to 400 and season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the internal temperature is 165. Let rest and then cube, set aside.
