The best 5 ingredient chicken tortilla soup only takes 20 minutes to make! One pot is all you need for this delicious and creamy tortilla soup. Combine 5 ingredients + some spices and let it simmer on the stove top. Top with cheese, avocado, chips, and sour cream.
In a large soup pot, combine all ingredients and stir together. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Once boiling, turn heat to low, cover with lid and let it simmer for 10-20 minutes.
Serve with all your favorite toppings.
I use full salt chicken broth so I do not add any additional salt. If you use low-sodium chicken broth you may need to add salt. Just taste the soup when it's done simmering and add salt if needed/wanted.
The seasonings are very customizable. Add more or less of any seasoning, add some cayenne pepper for some heat, or use fresh garlic. There really is no wrong way to add the seasonings. Just add what you like!
