Chicken Tortilla Soup


I love love love the taco seasoning used in this soup.  I always make a big batch and then keep it in my pantry for use later just like the taco seasoning mixes you can buy at the grocery store.  In addition to using it in this soup it’s also great in tacos (obviously), burritos, and 7 layer dip.  Try the seasoning in this soup recipe and you will surely be using it for many more dishes thereafter.

Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 poblano pepper, chopped
1 1/2 tbs taco seasoning (see recipe below)
2 chicken breasts, chopped
2 tbs tomato paste
1 15.5 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 c corn
4-5 c chicken stock (depending on how thick you like the soup to be)
2 avocados, diced for garnish
doritos, crushed for garnish (use fritos for DF, GF)

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, poblano pepper, and taco seasoning.  Stir and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.  Push veggies to the sides of the pot and add chicken to the center.  Stir occasionally and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add tomato paste stirring into other ingredients to combine.  Add black beans, corn, and chicken stock.  Bring soup to a boil then reduce to a simmer and let cook for 30 minutes for flavors to blend.  Laddle soup into a bowl and garnish with avocado and doritos.
