It’s week 2 of the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge with ConAgra Foods where I’ve been asked to share Kid Friendly Family Meals to make in under 30 minutes. In total, 5 recipes with 5 different ingredients to start with. This week our ingredient to use was Hunt’s Diced Tomato’s, and I thought of a family favorite. This Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe is so quick and easy to make, and the texture with the crunchy tortilla strips is delicious. Chicken, diced tomatoes, and beans make up the base of this meal, which makes it hearty and filling as well.  You can add or take away any ingredients as desired, too. Disclosure: I received compensation for this contest, but the thoughts are all my own.Chicken Tortilla Soup

We make many variations of this meal at my home almost weekly, and the kids will often cheer when they hear about it. I love that sound;)

I’ll eat this all year round, but a warm, hearty soup always sounds delicious on a chilly fall night–I long for that chill in the air;)  If you are in Texas, head to H-E-B, there is a coupon this week for the Hunt’s diced tomatoes!

  7. Kristen the green chile in this recipe- is that chilies or a sauce?

    • Kristen Duke says:

      It’s a sauce, so sorry, I need to edit that! It’s kinda like a salsa, but green and less chunky.

      • So like a tomatillo sauce? I saw some like that at Target along with green enchilada sauce but figured that wasn’t what you used. It just wasn’t specifically called green chile sauce. What size jar did you use?

  8. Sounds like the perfect comfort food! Yum!

  9. Ever since we went to Mexico, I’ve been obsessed with Chicken Tortilla Soup! This looks awesome, Kristin! Totally craving a big bowl of warm soup now : )

  10. There is no water or chicken stock? What makes it “soup?”

  11. What is that garnish? It looks almost like corn chips?
