Delicious homemade tortilla soup recipe – can be made with chicken or vegetarian. Authentic flavor, and real food ingredients & can be made in the slow cooker! Serve with delicious jalapeno cheddar biscuits or artisan bread.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, finely chopped
  • 23 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 15oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed (or 1 1/22 cups cooked dry beans)
  • 1 15oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (or 1 1/22 cups cooked dry beans)
  • 1 15oz can corn (or 1 1/22 cups fresh kernels or frozen)
  • 2 15oz cans diced tomatoes, with liquid (any variety)
  • 1 cup chili verde salsa (we like La Victoria or my homemade recipe)
  • 2 quarts bone broth (homemade if possible)
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning *
  • 1 tsp cumin *
  • 1/2 tsp chili *
  • optional toppings (see below)

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, sauté garlic, onion, carrots, and celery with olive oil and butter until onions become translucent.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for at least 30 minutes. A longer simmer will create a more flavorful soup.

Notes

* seasoning measurements are minimums; add more if desired.

  • This tortilla soup adapts well to a slow cooker. Simply combine all the ingredients and turn the heat to medium-low and let it cook all day.
  • Make it company-worthy by serving crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and freshly chopped cilantro on the side. Allow guests to top their own soup. If time permits, freshly baked bread is always nice (jalapeno focaccia perhaps?).
