So y’all know how much I love soup! If my family loved soup as much as I do then we’d probably have it every. single. night! To get my soup fix I usually will make a big pot of it at the beginning of the week and eat it for lunch all week long.

I love this chicken tortilla vegetable soup! It’s hearty, healthy, and has so much flavor. It also combines to of my favorites; tex mex chicken tortilla soup and vegetable soup. It really is so good and unique twist to the classic.

This soup cooks in one pot on the stove top and only needs to simmer for about 20 minutes. I love to simmer it longer if I have the time. The flavor develops and it’s so delicious.

You get all the flavors of classic chicken tortilla soup; the broth base, shredded chicken, diced tomato, black beans, and spices like coriander, garlic powder and cumin. Then you get the addition of the vegetable soup; carrots, celery, onions, corn, and spices like parsley flakes and basil.

Serve with some crispy corn tortilla strips and diced cilantro. The cilantro adds such a fresh flavor and it really does take this soup to the next level. And those darned crispy corn tortillas. I made a big batch to last me all week long and they were gone within hours.

Between my kids grabbing them to snack on and me grabbing a few every time I would walk by them, they did not last long.

The crispy corn tortillas strips are actually so easy to make:

Stack 3-4 corn tortillas (I used white corn tortillas) and cut into thin strips either with a pizza cutter or a knife. You want to cut very thin strips so they get crispy while frying. If they’re too thick the middle they will end up a bit chewy while the ends are crispy.

Heat up about 2″ of oil in a pot and cook over medium heat until the oil is hot enough to fry. An easy way to test this is to dip the end of a corn tortilla strip into the oil. If it bubbles up and sizzles then the oil is hot enough. Do not turn up the heat thinking that it will heat faster. If it’s too hot the oil can boil over while frying and start a grease fire. It will take 5 minutes or so to heat up hot enough over medium heat but just be patient and don’t turn up the heat.

Drop a handful of strips into the oil and fry until crispy. This only takes a few minutes. Move to a plate lined with paper towels and immediately sprinkle with salt. Let them drain and cool on the paper towel lined plate. So easy and so delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz) beef broth
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • In a large stock pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrot and onion; cook and stir occasionally for 6-8 minutes or until tender.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling reduce heat to medium low, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Serve with crispy corn tortilla strips, cilantro, sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado chunks

Notes

To make cutting carrots easy just use some baby carrots. They are already peeled and the perfect size.

I use one can regular chicken broth and one can reduced-sodium chicken broth.

If you want a spicier soup use a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies) in place of the diced tomatoes.
