Mi Madre Maria’s Chicken Tortilla Soup by Cooke Tavern

This soup is quick to make, flavorful, and filling! It has a zesty blend of freeze dried corn and quick cook black beans to make up a Mexican favorite that will make you say ‘Ole’! Add a can of crushed tomatoes (with chilies or jalapeños if you dare) along with some chicken for a special treat. Serve with corn bread and tacos to make a great Mexican meal. How about a Margarita too?

Cooking Instructions


  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans chicken broth

  • Bring chicken broth, soup mix, chicken breast (if using raw), and water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. 
  • Remove chicken breast, shred, and return to soup pot (if using cooked chicken, add now). Add diced tomatoes and simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes. 
  • Top with crumbled tortilla chips & shredded cheddar cheese to serve. Add a spoonful of salsa or some hot sauce for extra heat.
