Tortilla Soup

During the colder months, I like to a make some type of soup at least once a week.  Scratch that.  I make soup all year long!  Who doesn't like soup?!  I have a few favorites that are in constant rotation, but my absolute favorite... go-to...can make it in my sleep...know all the ingredients off the top of head soup is Tortilla Soup!  It's so hard for me to share recipes, because I'm stingy like that.  And if my friends knew all my recipes, then they wouldn't have to come to the Keenan house for tasty little treats.  However, this soup recipe is just too good not to share, and I'm feeling generous!   For those of you crazy ones that are already dreaming about Cinco de Mayo, this would be the perfect dinner with margaritas of course!  Now I'm gonna have to share my marg recipe, but that is for another day.  Enjoy!

Tortilla Soup

1 tsp olive oil
1 chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
4 cups beef broth
4 cups chicken broth
½ cup tomato juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 jalapeño, chopped
10 dashes of Frank's hot sauce
(You can add the seeds or not, depending on how spicy you want the soup)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp worchestershire
(I like to do a little extra of this)
2 cups shredded & cooled cooked chicken
1 large tomato diced
1 avocado peeled and sliced
1 can black beans, drained
Monterey jack cheese
Fritos (chili cheese)
Sour Cream

Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil
Add chicken and beef broth, tomato juice, cumin, chili powder,
 jalapeno, hot sauce, salt, & worchestershire
Bring to a boil
Simmer uncovered for 1 hour
Add chicken, tomatoes, beans, & avocado

* This soup is generally healthy, but then I like to dump a whole bunch 
of cheese, chips, and sour cream on top!  It's best enjoyed this way! :-)

~Also, I finally added a recipe tab at the top, so check that out!~


  1. This looks delicious. I've never made tortilla soup, but I bet my family would love it. I am going to pin it for later.

    1. I haven't found someone that did not like it yet! Hope your family enjoys it!
