Chicken Tortilla Soup

I don’t know about your household, but in the fall, we make soup. And more soup. There’s something so comforting about it, and worth the calories. The best part about chicken tortilla soup is this recipe takes 30 minutes.

You read that right, 30 minutes. When cooking for my family, I want it to be filling and something we’d sit around the table and eat together. Extra points if my daughter can help make the dish and this soup checks those boxes.

Let’s talk pots. My favorite pot to cook soups in is the Martha Stewart Dutch Oven. It’s beautiful for starters, but it slow cooks soups on the stovetop like no other. Being able to have the cooking dish go from stovetop, to oven to table is convenient as well, and less cleaning up!
