Cheesy Tortilla Soup

Start with Rick Bayless Mexican Everyday, add Barefoot Contessa at Home, multiply times what I have in my kitchen, and take to the Marion Cunningham Cheese Sauce power, and your product is this soup. It was so delicious. Beware, because portion control is not an option here.

Cheesy Tortilla Soup

  • 4-6 cups chicken broth (I just boiled the heck out of a rotisserie chicken, strained it and added some salt)
  • 1/2 C salsa (I used Kroger brand cilantro because that’s what I had in the fridge)
  • 1/2 C chopped onion
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  • 3 corn tortillas, ripped into smaller pieces
  • 1 recipe cheese sauce
  • Salt to taste

In a soup pot, saute your onion in the olive oil until soft. Add the broth, salsa, and corn tortillas. Simmer for 30-45 minutes until the tortillas break up and dissolve. Slowly stir in the cheese sauce. Eat.

If you have them in the house, this would be great with some cooked chicken stirred in after the cheese sauce and/or topped with some cheese, jalepenos, or sour cream. And some tortilla chips on top would be good too. Also some avocado slices…
