Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup is such a flavorful and easy recipe with simple ingredients!

If you’ve been following along, you know that I’ve honored to be an ambassador for Old El Paso this year. It has been so fun to get creative with their amazing products. I took it old school this month with this Skinny Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. I used their Green Chiles to make it a tad spicy, their Taco Seasoning to give it some extra (easy) flair, and garnished with Crispy Fried Tortilla Strips for some needed crunch. SO much Old El Paso to love in this one little recipe!

How to Make Homemade Fried Tortilla Strips

It’s super simple! I brushed some flour tortillas with oil and taco seasoning and then fried in oil. Conversely, you can fry the thin strips and then while still hot and before they dry, sprinkle on the taco seasoning. These Homemade tortilla strips are an easy way to add some character to this Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup!

Can you freeze Chicken Tortilla Soup?

Yes! Let the soup cool completely and then either place in a freezer safe bag or container. Keep the tortilla strips separate from the soup if you plan to freeze. Thaw in the fridge before serving and then heat on the stovetop. Easy peasy!

How would you thicken this Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup in a pinch?

If you need to thicken this Tortilla Soup, take one cup of the soup broth and mix with 1 tablespoon flour. Stir together until a paste forms. Slowly pour into the soup, stirring while you combine. Works like a charm!

Is Chicken Tortilla Soup Healthy?

This one is! We have made little tweaks to skinny it down from the typically Chicken Tortilla Soup. If you take care in what garnishes you include, you’re in business.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 14.5 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes (or regular if you prefer less spicy)
  • 1 4.5 ounce can Old El Paso green chiles
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 4 cups cooked and shredded chicken or rotisserie chicken
  • 1 1 ounce packed Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • 1 11 ounce can steamed corn, drained and rinsed

FOR THE TORTILLA STRIPS

  • 2 cups canola oil
  • 2 8 " Old El Paso Burrito Tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso Taco Seasoning

OPTIONAL GARNISHES

  • cilantro Old El Paso sliced Jalapenos, low fat sour cream, low fat shredded cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat oil over medium/high heat in a medium skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. I like mine to be a bit under-sauteed, to keep a bit of their crunch.
  2. Once sauteed, add the onion and garlic to a slow cooker over high heat. Add in all other ingredients except for tortillas and garnishes. Stir to combine.
  3. Heat on high, covered, for 2-3 hours, or on low for 4-5 hours.
  4. Before serving, prepare the tortilla crisps:
  5. In a small saucepan, heat the canola oil over medium/high heat.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into 1/2 inch strips.
  7. Cook the strips in batches, about 2-4 minutes or until browned. 

  8. Using a slotted spoon, remove the strips and allow to drain on a paper towel.
  9. While strips are still hot and before they've dried, sprinkle with taco seasoning and salt to taste. Allow to dry completely.

  10. When ready to serve the soup, serve garnished with extra cilantro, low fat sour cream, jalapenos, and tortilla strips. Or any of your favorite toppings!
  11. Enjoy!
