Mexican Tortilla Soup is an unexpected treat when you're looking for a warming way to start your meal. Why, it's even hearty enough for a light meal all by itself or with a salad or quesadillas.
Cooking Time: 15 min
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 5 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 cup broken-up baked tortilla chips
- In a soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, bell pepper, and garlic, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the chicken is browned on the outside, stirring frequently.
- Stir in the chicken broth, corn, and salsa; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink.
- Stir in the cilantro, ladle into bowls, and serve topped with the tortilla chips.
