Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

A few additions to canned cream of chicken soup provide the comforting flavor found in Carolyn Griffin's mock chicken dumpling soup. "The chunks of chicken are nice and tender," notes the Macon, Georgia cook. "And you can't tell that the dumplings are actually tortilla strips."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 4 flour tortillas (6 inches), cut into 2-1/2-inch strips
  • Minced fresh parsley


  • 1. In a 3-qt. saucepan, bring the soup and water to a boil. Stir in chicken and tortilla strips; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 6 servings.

"This is not very tasty. It's just a can of condensed soup with a few added ingredients."

"Didn't care much for it. Thought it was rather boring and tasteless as it is. Added pepper and garlic which helped. Won't make again."

"Made recipe as written, but it seemed bland. I added a little poultry seasoning, pepper, garlic powder. This seemed to help. Will make again with added seasonings. Good recipe base and very quick to make."

"Just finished making it and am surprised how good it truly is. So simple and only three ingredients. I decided to make this recipe to use up a few things left in the fridge, and am already thinking about the next time I make it and other worthy ingredients I might add that need to be used. I will definitely make this again."
