Hello! I used to think that making soup at home was super difficult and would take forever. But this is a super easy chicken tortilla soup recipe. It tastes like it’s made from scratch and it kinda sorta is… but there are a few shortcuts that make it fast!
First – you need shredded chicken. You can shred a chicken breast you made at home, some rotisserie chicken or make chicken with salsa in the crock-pot.

I used the salsa chicken I made this weekend during meal prep. When I was portioning everything out I put 1 cup of the shredded chicken in a big glass bowl and added the other ingredients.
Then, I let it set overnight and heated it up the next day.
