Easy Tortilla Soup


I love On The Border’s soup, though it can be a tad too spicy sometimes. In the opinion of my husband, this soup is even better than OTB’s. My children refuse to eat it. You can be the judge.

Here’s the recipe:  Serves 4-6

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
2 cans of diced tomatoes (don’t drain)
2 cans of chicken broth
1 cup of salsa
1 clove minced garlic
2 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. dried cilantro
1 Tbsp. ground cumin

Serve with:  avocado and white rice

*Note:  I only made half the recipe when I was taking the photos (since it was only us eating it), so it will make twice as much as it shows.

1. Cook and shred your boneless chicken breasts. I just stuck mine in a large pot of water, brought it to a boil and then turned it on low and cooked it (covered) for 1 hour. It was tender and easy to shred.
2. Add 2 cans of diced tomatoes (don’t drain).
3. Add two cans of chicken broth.
4. Add the butter, garlic, salsa, cilantro, and cumin. Stir.
5. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
6. Cut up an avocado.
7. And cook some rice (I used minute rice). Place a few spoonfuls of rice in the bottom of your bowl.
8. Add your soup and serve with avocado!

  1. looks yummy!! I also wanted you to know I bought the potty pod after seeing it on this blog, and I like it (I think my daughter does too!!) happy summer :)

  2. That looks really yummy! I have the afternoon munchies this afternoon! I love the idea of adding avocado to it, thanks!

  3. Sounds wonderful! Have you ever mad it in the crock pot? I’m wondering if I shoud cook the chicken before tossing all the stuff in the crock pot? (I won’t add the avacados!) I will try this tonight!

    1. Yes, it was actually intended to be a crock-pot recipe…but I found that when I boiled the chicken and had already dirtied one pot, I just wanted to be able to throw everything in the same pot and not dirty my crock-pot! What can I say??? I don’t like doing dishes! ;)
