Kid-Friendly Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Chicken Tortilla Soup
I have tried so many different versions of chicken tortilla soup before finalizing this kid-friendly version that even my picky eater will eat for dinner. The soup requires very little work, and can simmer on the stovetop while working on the kids homework.

When looking for a simple and delicious weeknight dinner for your family then this soup is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Kid-Friendly Chicken Tortilla Soup


1 lb. chicken (I used a rotisserie from the grocery store and used most of the meat)
1 onion
1 tea. cumin
2 garlic cloves
2 Tbl. Olive oil
2 cups of chicken broth
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup of corn
Optional 1/2 cup of water


1. In a dutch oven on high heat add olive oil, onion, cumin, and garlic. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until onion is translucent.
2. Add cooked chicken and cook for approximately 5 minutes (allowing all the flavors to blend)
3. Then add chicken broth, tomatoes, and corn. If the soup is too thick, add 1/2 cup of water.
4. Cook covered on medium heat for 20-30 minutes.
5. Top with cilantro and your favorite toppings, and enjoy!
