Chicken Tortilla Soup


  • * 12 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • * 6 oz Dole Bell Pepper, chopped
  • * 5 oz onion(s), chopped
  • * 2 oz celery, finely chopped
  • * 14 1/2 oz Progresso Fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • * 3 oz Green Giant Niblets Corn, Frozen
  • * 7 clove garlic clove(s)
  • * 1 Tbsp canned chipotle peppers
  • * 3 oz Kraft 2% Milk Natural Cheese Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • * 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • * 1/2 tsp McCormick Ground cumin
  • * 1 oz cilantro
  • * 2 cup water
  • * 6 oz avocado, diced
  • * 3 small corn tortilla(s), baked and crumpled
  • * 15 oz canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • * 2 stalks of green onion, finely sliced


Begin by spraying a non-stick spray in a pot, add the onion, bell pepper, and celery and cook until soft. Add the diced chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add the black beans, fire roasted diced tomatoes, green onions, 1 cup of the water, salt and pepper to taste.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees and pop the corn tortillas on a cookie sheet and into the oven, cook until golden. About 10-15 min depending on your oven. Keep a close eye on these.

In a mini food processor, add the garlic, 1 cup of the water, the chipotle pepper, and the cilantro. Process until mostly smooth.

Add that to the soup. Add the shredded cheese, avocado, and the crumbled corn tortillas.

For those doing Weight Watchers it’s 4 points a serving. This recipe makes 7 servings. 1 cup = 1 serving. This soup is more stew like, you can add more or less water to taste if you want it more soupy.

I love food like the ghetto peach cobbler. It takes some imagination and dash of courage to mix things together like that.  And it sounds like you rocked it!  Amazing photographs, too :)
