Tortilla Soup

I try, whenever I can, to make old favorites that were always gluten-free. Here is one of our cold-weather favorites, Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Since I am trying to do away with most processed foods for myself, this one is nice and simple but without anything too fake. My whole family likes it.

Tortilla Soup

1/2 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 lb. chicken, cooked and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can Rotel
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
salt to taste

Saute chicken, onion and garlic in oil. Add tomatoes, Rotel, broth and seasonings. Simmer an hour. Serve with cheese and corn chips.
We put the chips in the bowl and pour the soup over them, then top with cheese.

Check all ingredients, especially spices, for gluten. Now, I often boil the chicken and make my own broth, use what I need for the soup and freeze the rest for next time, but you can use canned or boxed broth (check for gluten).

  1. This is one of our favorite soups! I made some just last week.

    Something I also do is add fresh or a can of sliced carrots and/or some corn - adds color and more veggies.
