“Another cooking class recipe. This is a lovely tortilla soup with homemade tortilla strips. The things that make this recipe a little different from the others is the tomato sauce, rice, cilantro and limes. I'm not a big cilantro fan but I loved it in this recipe. I've found that you don't have to flip the tortilla strips if you use foil on the bottom of your baking sheet. Also, the rice is partially cooked so as to not overcook the rice while simmering in the soup. Prep time is if you already have cooked chicken and rice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, saute the olive oil, onions and garlic until the onions are transparent (about 5 minutes).
  2. Next, add the remaining ingredients (except for the cilantro and limes).
  3. Stir well and allow soup to simmer for 20-30 minutes until ready to serve. Before serving, stir in the cilantro, lime juice and zest to keep their flavors.
  4. Garnish with sour cream, parmesan cheese and toasted tortilla strips.
  5. Toasted Tortilla strips: Cut tortillas into 1/2 inch wide strips.
  6. Place the tortilla strips on a large baking sheet (single layered) and spray them with pan spray, or you may baste them with melted butter.
  7. Season with salt and pepper and place them in a 375 degree oven. Bake until golden and crisp (about 10 minutes).
  8. Make sure to turn strips over halfway through the baking process.
