 This Mexican soup makes me excited for the cold weather! It’s the perfect recipe for a cold night by the fire! This is a play on my favorite tortilla soup, but I took out the tortillas and boosted up the flavor with some delicious spices. I love this soup because you can make it ahead of time and throw it on the stove for dinner. This soup is also great because it has a ton of flavor and it’s pretty much guilt free!! You can make it totally guilt free by skipping the butter and topping with only green onions and cilantro! Either way… it’s so good!

 Start by seasoning the chicken with salt and pepper on each side. Drizzle with olive oil and place into a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.

 Dice up 2 white onions. This will seem like a ton of onions, but don’t worry, this gives the soup a ton of flavor!

Add the onions and olive oil into a large pot and let cook over medium heat until the onions become translucent, about 5 minutes.

 Next you want to peel and chop your carrots.

Then continue by chopping up the celery, cut the celery stocks in half length wise before dicing. This soup requires quite a bit of chopping but I promise it is well worth it! Sometimes I will chop up all the veggies ahead of time and then assemble the soup later.

Now chop up the jalapeños, be sure to remove the seeds. This soup isn’t spicy so if you want it to be, add in 2 or 3 jalapeños.

Once everything is chopped, add the veggies in with the onions and let cook for about 10 minutes.

While the carrots, celery and jalapeños  are cooking, mince up the 4 cloves of garlic. Add in the garlic and 1 tablespoon of butter. The butter adds a richness that is delish.

 When the butter melts, season up the soup. Add in the salt, pepper, cumin and coriander. You will use a lot of cumin but it brings big flavor!

Mix in all the seasonings and then pour in the can of crushed tomatoes and the can of Rotel.

Pour in the chicken broth and squeeze in the limes. Bring the soup up to a boil.

While the soup in cooking away, shred up the chicken using 2 forks. I like to let the chicken rest for about 15 minutes before I shred it, that way the juices will redistribute and the chicken will be delicious.

As soon as the soup comes up to a boil, reduce the heat to low and add in the chicken and cilantro. Let simmer for at least 30 minutes.

Top with tortillas chips, cheese, sour cream, avocado, lime wedges, cilantro, green onion….. really anything!
