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.


Cook onions, garlic, pepper, and tomato paste

  • Add onions, garlic, poblano pepper, tomato paste, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and a generous pinch of kosher salt to Brava Chef’s Pan; stir well.
  • Slide Chef's Pan, uncovered, into top shelf. Press green button to begin cooking.
  • Note: You will remove Chef’s Pan after 12 minutes.


Blend soup base in blender

  • Once Brava notifies you, carefully remove Chef’s Pan.
  • Press the green button to begin preheating the Brava to 350°F.
  • While Brava preheats, add chili powder, cumin, and oregano to onion mixture; stir well. Let sit in the hot Chef’s Pan for 1-2 minutes to bring out stronger spice flavor.
  • Carefully transfer all Chef’s Pan ingredients to blender with fire roasted tomatoes, fire roasted green chiles, chicken broth, and few generous pinches of kosher salt.
  • Blend until smooth. Season to taste with more salt as needed.


Add remaining ingredients and finish cooking
