Quick Chicken Tortilla Soup

I know you are surprised I posted a recipe for soup for Memorial Day. This week I wanted to post some recipes my friends and family had recommended. I always like quick meals and thought this soup was great. I really liked it. The kids liked it even though my daughter said enough soups already. I will admit I like to cook soups since they tend to have a lot of vegetables and are healthier for us. I had to serve my husband his bowl first since I hadn't added the beans. He has this thing against beans. Whether you hold the beans or not, this is a great quick meal.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken)
1 Tbsp taco seasoning
2 cans (10 oz.) Rotel tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup sweet corn
1 jar (16 oz.) salsa
4 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper

  1. In a large pot, add the chicken with the taco seasoning over medium heat. 
  2. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the Rotel, corn, salsa, and chicken broth.
  4. Stir occasionally and allow to cook for 20 minutes. 
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, etc.
