Stephanie’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

So I have this friend; she is beautiful,  smart and a great mommy. Everything that comes out of Stephanie’s kitchen is ridiculously delicious. I’ve been lucky enough to have tried many of her dishes!

For one of our Bluprint Marriages night she made this amazing tortilla soup. I finally asked her for the recipe and tried it this weekend. It was so easy to whip it together! With her permission I decided to share this quick and simple recipe. I think this is something you can add to your winter menu that the whole family would enjoy.

I had never had tortilla soup before BP marriages night. It just never sounded that great to me. I grew up in a very Mexican household and we never made tortilla soup.  It always sounded really Americanized to me…and it kind of is. Either way…it doesn’t matter because it is really delicious!

Here is the main cast of characters:

1 rotisserie chicken, 8 cups of chicken broth, 1 large can of rotel tomatoes,  2 cans of black beans (rinsed and drained), 2 cans of corn, 2 cans of diced green chilies, 1 stick of butter and white rice (this is optional).

You will also need salt, pepper, garlic powder and  2 heaping tablespoons of flour. For the toppings, I used tortilla chips, avocado, cheese and yummy green onions. (Not shown in photo)

The first step in Stephanie’s directions is to melt a stick of butter in a stockpot. Once it is melted add the two spoonfuls of flour and whisk. This will give the soup a little thickness.  Once that is mixed well then add about a teaspoon of salt, garlic and pepper. You can add more later if you wish.

Once all of that is combined, you can add the 8 cups of chicken broth.

Once the flour mixture and chicken broth is thoroughly combined add the cans of drained black beans, cans of corn, rotel and green chilies. Mix and bring it to a boil.

While that is boiling start shredding your chicken. I’m about to say something crazy. Up until recently I always cooked my own chicken for recipes like this…I don’t know why I never thought about using a rotisserie chicken from Sams. One day my friend called me out on it and I was so ashamed that I didn’t already do this!

Add your perfect chicken to the pot and leave it to boil some. I left mine for about an hour but I think 30 minutes will do. Right before I turned off the stove, I added two tablespoons of sour cream and let it melt in.

Then fill a bowl with soup grab your toppings and VIOLA! Stephanie’s original recipe didn’t call for white rice; however, I decided to add some. It would be great with or without it. I cooked it in a separate pot and added it as I served it. I hate soggy rice. Lol.

The best thing about this soup is that it taste so much better the next day. The flavors just melt into each other and create some sort of tortilla soup goodness!

I hope y’all give this recipe a try. I promise you will love it! Have a blessed week! – Moni ❤
