30 minute chicken tortilla soup



The temperatures plummeted in Raleigh over the weekend, and with our new puppy Winnie, we were looking for a fast, healthy (and comforting!) recipe. Enter chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is DELISH, and it comes together in 30 minutes. Full of rotisserie chicken, corn, beans ... and topped with avocado and tortilla strips ... it's crunchy, hearty and addictive. And in our opinion, it tastes as good -- if not better -- than restaurant versions. Because not everyone enjoys spice, we added a dash of cayenne pepper and chili powder; but if you like the heat, we'd recommend the full amounts. Hope you enjoy it as much as our family does!
