Mexican Tortilla Soup

Originally developed with Mexican Tortilla Flavor Infused Broth, we’ve updated this recipe to use Swanson® Chicken Broth, cumin and lime juice to give it the same fabulous flavor.  This classic Mexican dish combines chicken, black beans and veggies in a flavorful broth.  Topping it off with crushed tortilla chips gives it the perfect crunch.

    Delicious and Easy!

    I made this for dinner last night. I used 1 can of black beans, 1 can of pinto beans, 1 can of whole kernel corn, diced tomatoes, 1 8oz can of tomato sauce, chicken, freshly chopped green onions and cilantro and a package of taco/mexican rice. I dumped it all in and it takes care of itself. Topped with shredded cheese and sour cream, this soup is a winner! Fast, easy, cheap and delicious!

    Crockpot it up!

    I love this. I put it all in the crock put with frozen chicken and leave it for 6 hrs. Shred the chicken and put it back in for another hour. So easy!

    Scrumptious Soup

    I had this broth on my pantry shelf a few weeks, but yesterday the mood was right for trying the soup. I had cooked chix breasts ready to go, but not all the ingredients on hand. Nevertheless, I substituted a few things like RoTel diced tomatoes w/cilantro & lime, and added Chipotle roasted tomatoes. The biggest difference from the recipe was adding shredded colby/jack cheese at the end and on low heat so it would melt without sticking and incorporate into the broth for a creamier texture. Just delicious!! Will make it again. Loved the spiciness of the flavors all blended together. Shared some with ny neighbor & she wanted my "recipe". Great broth base!!! Thanks!

    Very good and so easy to make.

    I've wanted to try this since I saw the box. One of my favorite soups. I was impressed with all the flavor, I didn't have jalapeno peppers so I used some jalapeno sauce. I used a store bought roasted chicken and Rotel tomato/green chile. Made sure to put a chopped up avocado in the bottom of the bowls added the soup and then topped with shredded Colby Jack cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Mmm, so good.
