Drool-worthy right? So fresh and vibrant even as the leaves are falling outside and everything is dying back. Soup season has officially begun when I make this recipe.
Top off your Chicken Tortilla Soup with all of your favorite things like:
- Fresh lime juice
- Sour cream
- Chopped tomatoes
- Fresh corn kernels
- Tortilla chips
- Hot sauce
- Shredded cheeses
- Green onions
- Smoked chipotle chili powder
- Sea salt
Garnishing Chicken Tortilla Soup
Use as many, or as few of these items to top or garnish the Chicken Tortilla Soup. It’s simple to set aside a bit of your regular ingredients as you prepare them and add them to the top of the soup after. Even if you choose not to add ingredients- you can still make it look garnished.
If you are looking to go all out and use this for a great family night or when you host this year Halloween Party- you could set up a little topping buffet and let everyone dress their own bowls. Trust me; this will be a crowd pleaser at any event.
Here is the recipe for Quick Chicken Tortilla soup that tastes slow simmered!Print
A hearty and delicious authentic Mexican chicken tortilla soup that takes 30 minutes to make!
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 3/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
- 14.5 ounce can petite diced tomatoes with juice
- 5 ounce can tomato paste
- 15 ounce can black beans
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons chili powder (I like smoked chipotle chili powder best)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- Add whole chicken breasts, diced onion, cans of tomatoes and tomato paste, and chicken broth to the pressure cooker pot.
- Close securely and set to high for 10 minutes. Release pressure for 10 more minutes after before removing the lid.
- Open the pot and shred the chicken, which will be cooked to perfection and tender by now. This is easy to do with 2 forks pulling opposite directions.
- Add cilantro, corn, beans, chili powder, salt, cumin, and garlic and stir until combined.
- Simmer on low for about 5 minutes more until corn and beans are heated through.
- Serve with toppings or garnishes of your choice including a crumble of tortillas and enjoy!
