Best Tortilla Soup

Last night we tried out this delicious Our Best Bites recipe that my little sister recommended to me. I love cooking and I especially love cooking soups! Last winter I made it my mission to find a good tortilla soup. Although I didn't ever find one specific recipe I liked, I took things from each of them (tried 3 different recipes) and made my own amazing tortilla soup recipe. It reminds me a lot of the Thai soup, but still delicious in its own way. It's the kind of soup you can get away with cooking in the summer time.

Best Tortilla Soup

1 Tbs. oil
1 onion, chopped
2-14oz. can chicken broth
2-10oz. cans Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro
1-4oz. can diced green chilies
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1-15.25oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1-15.25oz. can corn, drained
1lb. chicken, cooked and shredded

corn chips


In a large pot, sauté onions in oil until tender. Add in chicken broth, Rotel, green chilies, spices, beans, and corn. Bring soup to a boil and add chicken. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes.


Place slightly crushed up corn chips in the bottom of a soup bowl. Next, ladle soup into bowl and garnish with fresh lime, cilantro, and avocado. Enjoy!
