This hearty and spicy tomato-based soup contains chicken, beans, corn, jalapenos, onions, and spices. While it cooks, debone and chop the rotisserie chicken, and you can have this meal ready in less than an hour.
Quick and Easy Recipe
This recipe is similar to my Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. However, this quick-cooking soup uses a rotisserie chicken and only cooks for about 30 minutes on the stovetop.
Using Rotisserie Chicken
Did you know you should add rotisserie chicken after the soup cooks? Rotisserie chicken is so tender that it doesn’t need any additional cooking. Add it just before this soup is ready. The short cooking time will heat the chicken but not overcook it.
Saute the Onion, Jalapeno, and Garlic
You will saute the onions, jalapeno, and garlic to soften them and bring out the garlic flavor. You can do this in the same pan you cook the soup. Occasionally I skip the saute step when I’m in a hurry, but I have found it worth the extra five minutes because the flavor is better.
Serve with Garnishes
My favorite things to serve with this soup are chips, sour cream, and cheese. They add extra flavor to the soup since it is not a cream-based soup with sour cream and cheese already in it.
Also, don’t forget to have hot sauce on hand for those who like a spicier soup. Cilantro and green onions also add a little extra flavor and the green color makes a pretty presentation when serving this soup to guests. Enjoy!
