You guys, it's soup season and I'm SO excited!  I have absolutely fallen in love with making big pots of soup for dinner lately.  Chicken Tortilla Soup is probably my very favorite soup of all, so I love when that's what I get to make for dinner.  

But we all know that weeknights can get crazy between homework, sports, and just life in general so I love that my Chicken Tortilla Soup is easy and comes together in about 20 minutes!

Here's all you need:

2-3 cups cooked shredded chicken 
1 cup corn (I use Trader Joe's Frozen Fire Roasted corn)
1 can black beans, drained
1 small can diced green chilies
1 box of chicken broth
1 can of diced tomatoes
6-8 cups water
1 tablespoon cumin, more or less to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper, more or less to taste
1 teaspoon paprika, more or less to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper, more or less to taste
Salt- I use a just a dash because we eat low sodium here

To Garnish: Shredded cheese, diced avocados, jalapeños, and tortilla chips

To make this recipe super easy, I usually cook a whole chicken in the crockpot one night and save the leftover chicken.  So this soup is always made the night after "crockpot chicken" night :)  You could use Rotisserie chicken too.  This is my favorite crockpot because it has a timer on it, and that comes in super handy for those busy weeknights. 

Add all ingredients, except the garnishes, into a large stock pot.  Stir occasionally on low heat for about 20 minutes so it gently simmers and the flavors blend together well.  Garnish with shredded cheese, avocados, jalapeños and tortilla chips (we just crush them a little over our bowls).  

This soup is so delicious, easy, and perfect for busy weeknights!  Every time we have it, my husband and I are brought back to our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta where we had the best Chicken Tortilla Soup ever.  This recipe is my recreation of that recipe, and it's always a hit here. 

What's your favorite easy Weeknight Dinner?
