Chicken Taco Soup

by elyn_ryn

This recipe is similar to my slow cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. However, this recipe uses a rotisserie baked chicken and is cooked on the stovetop.

This pot of soup is so easy to make! The rotisserie chicken is a big shortcut for preparing this soup. Since you are using pre-cooked chicken, it is placed in the pot last so as not to overcook it.

Saute the onions, jalapeno, and garlic to soften them and bring out the flavor of the garlic. Then add all the remaining ingredients except the chicken and simmer for 30 minutes.

Serve with chips, sour cream, and cheese.

Have hot sauce like Texas Pete on hand for those who like a spicier soup and don’t forget cilantro and green onions for garnish.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes about (6) 1 1/2 cup servings.

If the soup thickens after refrigeration, add more chicken stock to it.  You can use broth in place of stock.

Variation:  Add one cup of shredded cheddar cheese after the soup has cooked.  Stir until melted.  Do not cook the cheese.
