Mexico del Norte: A Delicious and HEALTHY Mexican Tortilla Soup (that will make you crave for seconds)

Share:
Sandy wore her Mexican hat tonight and made a fresh, delicious, and spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup. As the weather starts to chill in October, we make this recipe about once per month until Spring.  It’s easy to make, requires very little oil and salt, and the flavors, textures, warmth, and spice of the soup make me run north of the border and back into my kitchen for another bowl! 

Step 1: Chop up your vegetables. You can be creative here. We like peppers (Sandy went all out and did yellow, green, and red), celery, onions, garlic, cilantro, tomatoes, and jalapeño. Doesn’t this look like the Mexican Flag?

Step 2: Sauté your white breast chicken (cut it into cubes). Use very little oil to keep it healthy. Add Salt and pepper, cumin, and coriander for some kick.

Step 3: Sauté the veggies medium high heat and until soft.

Step 4: Add the cooked chicken to the veggies, and add chicken stock (we use low sodium), corn, and tortilla chip (the tortilla chips give the soup salt so no need to overly salt this dish!) Sandy prefers to cook on low for about an hour till the flavors all come together (but go fifteen minutes on medium low if you’re too hungry to wait!)

Step 5: Prepare your garnishes. This is where you can be creative again. Garnishes take your dish from good to great. We like fresh avocado, lime, cilantro, sour cream, tortilla chips, and Melinda’s Habanero Pepper Sauce.
