    Tortilla Soup

    Tortilla Soup

    2 Quarts water
    1 oz chicken base
    1 bay leaf
    2 oz tomato paste
    C Onion diced
    C carrots diced
    C celery stalks diced
    C green pepper diced
    1 T minced garlic
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 T salt and white pepper mix (5:1 ratio 5tsp salt/1tsp white pepper)

    1 C fresh tomato diced
    C zucchini diced
    Chicken meat (1 large chicken breast) diced in ” cubes
    C Red potatoes (peeled) diced inch cubes
    cup fresh chopped Cilantro
    shredded cheddar cheese

    Fresh corn tortilla strips, julienned and deep fried until crisp

    1. Combine first 11 ingredients in a stock pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for about 12 min.
    2. Add remaining ingredients except cilantro and tortilla strips
    3. Simmer until chicken is cooked and potatoes are soft.
    4. Serve garnished with tortillas, cilantro and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.


    1. If making this and the chicken enchiladas, you can boil chicken thighs for soup base and substitute chicken thigh meat for one of the large seasoned chicken breasts. Use the chicken breast and chicken broth for your soup, but still use the base to pump up the stock flavor.
    2. If not making the enchiladas you can bake the chicken breast in the oven at 325 for 30 min. Coat the chicken thigh with taco seasoning and bake. Chop up the cooked breast and add to soup.
    3. For your tortilla strips, cut premade corn tortillas into quarters and then julienne and deep fry. Season lightly with salt to taste.
