A 10 minute chicken tortilla soup. For real. And it’s so good!!

I kid you not! This soup really takes only 10 minutes to make – maybe 15. Ready, set, cook ….


1 T olive oil (or so)
1 med. onion, chopped
2 gloves garlic, chopped
1 T. chili powder
2 t. salt
6 c. chicken broth
1 can diced green chiles
1 can corn (or 1 c. fresh or frozen kernels)
1 tomato, chopped
1 1/2 c. cooked chicken, shredded
1/2 c. cilantro leaves
the juice of 1 lime

1. Saute onion, garlic, chili powder, and salt. Cook about 5 minutes until onion softens. Add green chiles and chicken broth and bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes.

2. Add corn, tomato, chicken, cilantro and lime juice and heat through for a few minutes (2 to 3).

Enjoy! Serve over crushed tortilla chips with a wedge of lime for some extra flavor.
