Chicken Tortilla Soup Instructions:
Start by heating oil in a soup pot. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and place in the warmed pot. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Add onions and garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add corn, salsa, taco seasoning, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover. Allow cooking for 6-7 minutes or until warm throughout. To make sure this meal only takes 30 minutes you want to have your strips baking and your soup cooking at the same time. If you watch my video below you will see how I made this and made it quick. Go ahead and slice tortillas into strips. Place on a baking sheet and brush with oil then sprinkle with salt. Bake your stripes them use them to top off your soup.
Top your soup:
Once your soup is ready I love to serve mine topped with sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro, and of course my baked tortilla stripes.
How to freeze this recipe:
To make this recipe and freeze it I usually wait to make the tortillas until I am ready to serve. Since they only take a few minutes and are not hard to get together. You can easily freeze the soup though. Cook it according to directions, allow to cool, then place a freezer bag, and into the freezer. This soup can last in the freezer for 3-4 months.
How to reheat this recipe:
To reheat this recipe place the frozen soup in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Place in a pot and reheat on the stove top until heated through.
