"Not So WAY More Homemade" Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

This recipe is a little more like food assembly (a la Food Network's Sandra Lee) but it's good and quick for a weeknight dinner solution. I will be posting my real HOMEMADE version of this soup soon.


1 rotisserie chicken (from grocery store)
Olive oil or butter for sautee
1 onion (rough dice)
2-3 cloves garlic (minced or pressed)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn (drained) (optional)
1 can Ro*Tel diced tomatoes
1 can [regular] diced tomatoes
Chicken broth/stock to taste

You will also need:

Stock pot
Tortilla Chips
Pre-shredded Mexican cheese blend


De-bone at least half of the roasted chicken and coarsely chop it into bite sized chunks.

Open all cans (tomatoes, soup and corn).

Heat some butter or oil in a stock pot over medium high heat, add diced onion and sautee for a few minutes. Add garlic and cook for just a minute. Then and chili powder, cumin and coriander and stir while cooking until fragrant. Add in coarsley chopped chicken and stir around to coat the chicken in the spices just a bit.

Now comes the easy part. Empty all cans into the pot... cream of chicken soup, creamed corn, whole kernel corn, Ro*Tel and diced tomatoes. Stir around and begin slowly adding chicken stock/broth until it reaches the thickness/thinness that you desire. Heat until all is completely combined and thouroughly warmed.

Serve in a shallow bowl. Assemble by breaking up some tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl, sprinkling generously with cheese and ladeling the soup over the top. I like to sprinkle a little extra cheese right on top.
