Superbowl Sunday!

It is snowing lightly here and so a yummy, homemade tortilla soup was in order.  It was well received by my sweetie and daughter #2. I thought I would share my recipe.  I never can create the same thing twice, however, this time, I wrote it down...  enjoy!

Kathleen's Tortilla Soup


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 smoked jalapenos in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 (15 ounce) can rotel tomatoes
  • 3 boxes organic chicken broth, I get it from Costco
  • 1 cup whole corn kernels, frozen works well
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 boneless chicken breast halves, frozen
  • crushed tortilla chips
  • sliced avocado
  • shredded sharp cheddar or jack cheese
  • chopped green onions
  • fresh cilantro


  1. In a medium stock pot, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and smoked jalapenos in oil until soft. Stir in chili powder, oregano, tomatoes, broth. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in frozen chicken breasts, corn, beans and cilantro. Simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Chicken will cook and then you can shred it.  Add water if needed.
  4. Ladle soup into individual serving bowls, and top with crushed tortilla chips, avocado slices, cheese, cilantro and chopped green onion.
