Old school Tortilla Soup -

Chicken broth from boiled chicken
One can Rotel

Combine broth and Rotel, season to taste, bring to rolling boil

Put broken tortilla chips and shredded cheese in bowl. Jalapeños too if you like.

Ladle boiling soup over chips/cheese.


You can chop some chicken up in it but not needed IMHO. Make chicken tacos instead.

I have a short attention spa

This is how I do it NG:

Step 1. Part out and boil a whole chicken until well done. Set aside to cool. Debone and save broth.

Step 2. Saute chopped onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno in sauce pot with butter until tender. Add one can of dice tomatos. Bring to simmer. Add salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and a little cumino (cumin). Note: At this point - you have a classic ranchero sauce (excellent over eggs, steak, with chips, ect). Transfer ranchero sauce to chicken broth and add chicken back into pot. Add chopped cilantro and bring to a simmer. Adjust seasoning to your preference. Serve with sliced avocado and freshly fried corn tortilla strips and Monterey Jack cheese.

Where's the rice?

1 whole chicken
1 diced onion
2 cans of diced tomatoes with chiles
garlic powder or garlic
A little bit of chile powder
as much rice as you want
corn tortilla strips or chips (careful on salt if you use chips)
Mexican blend cheese
I put the onion in with the chicken as it's boiling. As the chicken is cooling, I add the tomatoes, and rice. Tortilla strips are on the bottom of bowl. Then soup. Then cheese, and finally avocado.

That's how this half breed makes tortilla soup.
