I’m pretty sure that I’ve had chicken tortilla soup at a Mexican restaurant at least once before, but I’ve definitely never made it from scratch. It has always been a dish that I wanted to learn more about and give it a try. Back in January I saw a Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe that the Pioneer Woman posted. I made a mental note that this would definitely be part of my culinary journey this year.
When this week arrived and I knew I was making this recipe, I was pretty psyched. It looked healthy and packed full of vegetables, so I was in. I rushed out to the grocery store and began cooking it straight away this week.
Yet again the rotisserie chicken saved me a ton of time and energy. You could definitely buy uncooked chicken and make it as the recipe suggests, but P Dub (that’s the Pioneer Woman for those of you who don’t follow her) gave permission to use the rotisserie chicken, so I proceeded (and so should you). Plus the chicken is already packed full of flavor, so this is a great time saving option.
This dish was a cinch to make and was ridiculously flavorful. The garnishes are a must, so don’t forget them. It’s definitely a one pot wonder, and I HIGHLY recommend that you make it. It’s even better tasting than it looks, and that is saying a lot! I can’t wait to hear your feedback when you make this.
