I find myself craving Chicken Tortilla Soup on the regular, and this recipe hits the spot every time. Not only because it’s so yummy, but because it couldn’t be easier and takes no time at all!

It’s cozy, warming, healthy, and always delicious. Loaded with bell peppers, onion, garlic, jalapeño pepper, shredded rotisserie chicken, delicious spices, black beans, corn, and fire roasted tomatoes.

The rotisserie chicken in this recipe is key! It truly makes life so much easier, and I’m all about it. All you have to do is shred the chicken, chop the peppers, onions, garlic, and get to cooking! I’m telling ya– One pot. Thirty Minutes.

The leftovers are also super delicious, so I like to eat it for lunch throughout the week. It’s so nice to have prepped and ready.

I love toppings, so I load it up with anything and everything I have on hand: avocado, cilantro, lime, sour cream or greek yogurt, tortillas chips, etc.

I hope you love it!!! If you try it, as always I would greatly appreciate a comment or review below. Makes me so happy to hear what recipes you try and love! xo, Lindsay
