Delicious soup! I made a few changes--my envelope of fajita seasoning mix didn't call for marinating so I just diced up two large chicken breasts and sprinkled with the seasoning mix when they were nearly done. I also added diced green pepper to the skillet along with the onions and used homemade turkey stock I had frozen from Thanksgiving instead of the chicken broth. After I stirred in the cheese and let it simmer, we didn't think it needed the cream as it was nice and thick and creamy with just the melted cheeses (I probably added more cheese than it called for--LOL!. I also used a can of plain diced tomatoes and then added a can of diced green chilies since I didn't have any Rotel on hand.
Oh my goodness this is so good. We cut a cup of the broth out and don't add cheese to garnish because we learned we like it thicker and already love the amount of cheese in it. Hard to have self-control with this one- especially when served with tortilla chips.
Good recipe, but a lot of fat for sure with all that cheese!
I've been looking for a cheesy chicken tortilla soup recipe for a long time and this is delicious! We loved it!
"A keeper!" said all my family members when we enjoyed this soup tonight! My teens added Nacho Cheese Doritos instead of tortilla chips to the soup & thought those chips made it even better. I made my own taco seasoning mix from a recipe on the Allrecipes website, & the flavor was terrific--our local stores don't carry chicken fajita seasoning mix. Also added the whole can of tomatoes & chilies because I had to 1 1/2x the recipe in order to have enough for everyone. Will definitely made this one often!
Fantastic! I had already boiled some chicken and I didn't have the fajita seasoning mix so I just added some homemade taco seasoning that I had . I will definitely make again. May try it with ground beef instead of chicken in the future.
This is a very good tortilla soup recipe. It is very rich though with all the cheeses in it. My husband said he wanted it again and again though. Thank you for the new recipe taste of home!
Fantastic! I cooked the chicken, broth, chilies and tomatoes, onion, and fajita mix in a crockpot for 4-5 hours. Then i drained the chicken broth into a saucepan and added the flour, cheese, and fat free half and half to thicken. I added back the crockpot ingredients and had great results!
Made this soup for dinner over the weekend and my family loved it! The only thing I did differently was to add a large can of black beans as well as add the entire can of diced tomatoes (drained) to the soup. I served this with a fresh green salad, fresh guacamole and tortilla chips. Delicious! Thanks for sharing a great soup.
