Kara's Kitchen // Chicken Tortilla Soup

I made THE BEST chicken tortilla soup tonight for dinner. I'm so proud of myself because I totally came up with the recipe all on my own! It was seriously the best (homemade) tortilla soup I've ever had so I had to share it all with you guys.

Kara's Chicken Tortilla Soup


--32 oz box of chicken broth (2)
--can of rotel
--1 package of boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
--1 box of mexican style Rice a Roni
--1/2 of a squash and zucchini (I cut them into 4's)
--1/4 of an onion, chopped
--1/2 cup of baby carrots, chopped


Bring broth to a boil then add chicken and cook for about 25 minutes. I added a little Natures Seasoning to help give it some flavor.
Remove chicken and shred into bite size pieces.
Add rice (and about 1/4 of the seasoning pack) rotel and vegetables to broth. Cook on high for about 10 minutes. Reduce to medium low, add chicken, cover and let simmer for another 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Layer bottom of the bowl with crumbled tortilla chips. Top soup with shredded cheese.

I cannot rave enough about how good this turned out to be!! There's plenty left over so I'll be eating on this for a few days. I think it could actually use another box of chicken broth so I'll probably do that next time.

I'm totally Pinteresting this recipe. I did good.
