We had a little Southwest inspired dinner the other night, and we all loved this super easy Tortilla Soup.
Blender Tortilla Soup
2 cups diced tomatoes (canned whole works here too)
1 onion, cut into chunks
1/2 cup cilantro, packed
1 tbsp canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
4 cups chicken broth
1 cooked and shredded chicken breast (rotisserie chicken breast works great here too)
1 lime, juiced
– tortilla chips
Blend the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and chipotle peppers together in a blender or food processor. Add a small amount of chicken broth and blend everything until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and stir in the remaining chicken broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Add in the chicken breast and continue to simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice right before serving.
To serve, add a few tortilla chips into each bowl and ladle the soup over the top. Top with fresh cilantro.
