5 Minute Chicken Tortilla Soup

This post has been brought to you by United Market Street. All statements and opinions are my own.

Did you know that February is National Canned Food Month? In honor of the ease and convenience of canned foods, I created this 5 Minute Chicken Tortilla Soup. A quick and easy bowl of hearty, delicious Tex-Mex, right out of your pantry!

Colorful and happy, this tasty tortilla soup will brighten up a cold winter day.



Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 (14.5 oz.) cans chicken broth
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained
1 (15 oz.) can fire roasted diced tomatoes, do not drain
1 (12.5 oz.) can chicken breast, drained
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
2 teaspoons taco seasoning, or to taste (homemade or commercial)
toppings of choice, such as tortilla strips, cheese, avocado, cilantro, etc.

1. Combine all ingredients in a 3 to 4 quart saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Cover and let simmer on low for five minutes.

3. Serve with choice of toppings. Refrigerate leftovers. This soup freezes well (freeze without toppings).

Bonus! Here's one more recipe using a canned food product. This one is incredibly easy, as well. Just two ingredients and you're done:



Rustic Cherry Tart


1 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crust, or homemade equivalent
1 (21 oz.) can of cherry pie filling


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Following directions on package, unroll pie crust onto lined cookie sheet. Pour canned pie filling on to crust, spreading evenly, and leaving a 2 inch border around the edges of the crust.

3. Fold the unfilled border inward over the filling, pleating and pressing gently as necessary to fit. Brush crust lightly with egg wash or milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar (this step is completely optional, but pretty).
4. Bake for about 60 to 70 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Place tart, still on cookie sheet, on wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Slide tart, still on parchment paper, onto rack to continue cooling. Serve warm or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers.

  2. Joy,

    I love both of these easy recipes. The soup looks perfect for a quick, healthy and delicious meal. The cherry pie would always be a hit with me, especially since it is so easy to make.

    I hope you are doing well.

    Many Blessings,

  23. I often throw all these ingredients in a skillet when I'm too lazy to cook dinner and make chicken tacos. It's one of my husbands favorite things. I've never thought to add broth and make it a soup, but I love the idea!! Your cherry tart looks amazing too, and I never would have guessed it was only 2 ingredients!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Perfect because I heart on the radio that it is also National Cherry month! I make a taco soup similar to this and a creamy chicken soup that I add green chilies to as well. So nice to make dinner in a hurry now and then. Pinning your recipe for a new one to try. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
