Put My Kick Ass Chicken Tortilla Soup in Your Mouth!

Not mine, but it’s close. Imagine it covered with cheese, chips, sour cream and guacamole!!!





Who says Dad’s can’t cook!? I trade recipes with a good friend. This is my spin on his already AMAZING Chicken Tortilla Soup! After another person asked about it recently, i figured, HEY! POST IT!


– Bake the following ingredients together: ( I used a clay pot. It took 1hr 15min at 400*)
– 4 large chicken breasts
– 2 cans of tomatoes & chiles (as hot as you like)
– 1/2 can of beer
– 2 tbsp garlic
– 1 tbsp onion powder
– 2 or 3 drops of liquid smoke


– Remove chicken from pot and shred
– Combine shredded chicken and above ingredients into a large pot or slow cooker

– Add the following ingredients to taste:
~ 1 tbsp granulated chicken broth
~ 1 SMALL handful of cilantro
~ 1/4 cup lime juice
~ 1 tsp cumin
~ 1 can of sweet corn
~ 1 can of black beans


– To thicken you can add either a can of cream of chicken or tomato soup.

– You can garnish with…
– Shredded cheese (Chihuahua or Mexican blend)
– Tortilla chips (Or, you can shred real tortillas and bake them at 350* for a few min.)
– Sour cream
– Avocado… Anything you can think of….


It’s a little expensive to make the first time until you have most of the spices & liquid smoke. ~$30 if you have none of the ingredients. But it’s. Freakin’. Tasty!!! Enjoy!!!
