  • Use organic, high quality meat
  • This soup is spicy!!! So if you want less heat, I would recommend cutting the chili powder in half, and also add only one Chipotle Pepper in Adobo, you can always taste and adjust, but start adding the heat slowly
  • The classic Chicken Tortilla Soup is made with oregano, I personally have family members that are not a big fan of it so we used parsley instead
  • Use low sodium chicken broth, you don’t want to end up with a salty soup
  • You can shred the chicken less or more, based on your preference
  • Don’t forget to rinse the black beans! Otherwise the soup color won’t be as pretty!
  • If you can stir the soup once or twice during the cooking process it would be great
  • Go crazy with the fixings, the sky is the limit!
  • If you want the soup even more liquid, you can add one more cup of broth

  • Crockpot – very reasonably prices and definitely a kitchen must have if you are busy.
  • Dried Oregano – adds a nice flavor, always have some in my pantry
  • Dried Parsley – love using these in soups for extra flavor
  • Chili Powder – the perfect way to add some heat to any dish
  • Ground Cumin – is used in Mexican, Middle Eastern and Indian dishes, a little goes a long way as it has a beautiful, bold flavor
  • Garlic Powder – no recipe in my house is made without garlic, unless we are talking about cake. Garlic powder is versatile and it will add a lot of flavor to your main dishes. Also, it’s a must have if you are cooking Slow Cooker Soups as fresh garlic will get all mush after so many hours of cooking.
  • Onion Powder – great to have on hand to season main dishes and also to make meat rubs
  • Tomato Sauce – I buy Organic Tomato Sauce in bulk, as I use it in so many recipes, to make pasta sauce, pizza sauce and so many other recipes
  • Tomato Paste – so much more concentrated than the tomato sauce, I always keep Organic Tomato Paste on hand, it adds a lot of flavor and taste to any tomato dish
