About this Recipe

Chicken Tortilla Soup is a popular dish at Mexican restaurants and it’s surprisingly simple to make at home. Pantry staples and shortcuts like rotisserie chicken give this soup a punch of flavor, which means it comes together in less than an hour. Serve with tortilla strips, avocado, shredded cheese, and any of your other favorite fixings.
