{Food Dish} Recipe: 20-minute Tortilla Soup

This soup is hearty and healthy, and just really tasty. I ended up using a rotisserie chicken from the store, making it even faster. (It only took me 20 minutes from start to finish—perfect for a busy girl.)

I ended up enjoying the soup more than the cornbread.

20-minute Tortilla Soup

Simple and so delicious. Use a rotisserie chicken to get this done in 20 minutes. Boiled chicken works well, too, although it will add cooking time.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon salt
2 cans (14.5-ounce) petite diced tomatoes
2 cans (14.5-ounce) low-sodium chicken broth
1 ½ cups frozen corn
1 ½-2 cups diced or shredded rotisserie chicken

Optional garnish:

Cheddar cheese, shredded
Crushed tortilla chips

Heat olive oil in a soup pot until shimmer. Add pepper, onion, and salt, and sauté until tender. Add tomatoes and chicken broth; heat over medium-high until simmering. Add corn and chicken, and cook until corn is unfrozen and chicken is heated through (about 5 minutes). Serve with cheese and tortilla if desired.
