Dinner Tonight: Chicken Tortilla Soup (Chick-fil-A style!)

I tweeted out a few weeks ago that I absolutely love Chick-fil-A's new Chicken Tortilla Soup!  Usually, when I take the kids to Chick-fil-A, I don't eat anything...I usually just bring a Starbucks latte and then eat something when I get home.  However...Sheaffer told me how great this soup was, so I tried it and LOVED IT!  Well...after my tweet, a sweet gal named Kristy emailed me her recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup and said it tastes really similar to Chick-fil-A's.  So...I made it...I loved it...and I now think Kristy is a genius :)!

Every Southern girl needs at least 6 versions of Chicken Tortilla Soup, right?  This version though, just might be your favorite.  And, I made it a slow cooker version...even better!  Thank you Kristy!

Shopping List
1 pound chicken breast (thawed or frozen, it doesn't matter)
1 can black beans
1 can northern beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 package taco seasoning
1 can cream corn
1 cup frozen corn kernels
3/4 cup half and half 
Chopped green onion, sour cream, shredded cheese to garnish

In your slow cooker, add in chicken breasts, black beans, northern beans, Rotel, stock and taco seasoning.  Cook on low 6 hours or on high 3 hours.

Remove lid and shred chicken right inside of slow cooker using two forks.  Stir in cream corn and frozen corn kernels and keep lid off cooking another 20 minutes on high (this will let some of the liquid evaporate and give you a thicker soup).  Right before you're ready to serve, stir in your half and half.  Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with toppings.

That's it!  So simple and the slow cooker does all of the work for you!  I think it's the northern beans and cream corn that really make this soup original.  Thank you Kristy!

Yum! I've always been afraid to try making chicken tortilla soup but it's one of my favorites. And I admire your willpower, I can't resist stealing one of their fries from my kids every time we go. :)

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

Ummmmmmm.......Why wasn't a bowl hand delivered to my house? And only steal one of the fries? I order Carter the 6 piece every time in hopes that I will get one of the nuggets too! :)

I am obsessed with the tortilla soup at chick fil a too! Love your blog!

Missy McDaniel said...

YUMMMM! That sounds delicious! Will have to go get the ingred that I don't have so that we can have that this weekend!!!! OR we could have it before we watch the big finale Monday night!!!!!!!!!!

Angela said...

We don't have Chic-fil-a's in Oregon... I've always wanted to try it though! The closest one is in Idaho.

Sara said...

The recipe sounds great! Just FYI, 8 nuggets at chick-fil-a have the same amount of calories as a medium soup (260). So I usually go for the nuggets :)

Do you drain the cans of beans before putting them in the crockpot?

Mix and Match Mama said...

Nope! You don't need to drain the beans!

I love cfa tortilla soup!! Thus is added to my "to make soon" list!

I have no less than 10 recipes of tortilla soup and could eat it every night. I tried yours last night and used Market Street's preseasoned (chiptole and lime) chicken (behind the counter). It worked great. I cubed it before I cooked it because I knew I'd be in a hurry come meal time. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the recipe.

Kat said...

I made this soup yesterday and it was delicious. Thanks!

Friend made this for me and since the Chick here just recently stopped serving it due to it being a limited run, this was perfect and so so so good!

Do you pre cook chicken breast in order to shred it w/2 forks before putting in slow cooker or will it shred w/forks raw?
Thanks. MJ

Mix and Match Mama said...

You just add the chicken in there raw! It will cook up all day and then you shred it before serving.

How many servings does this make?

Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! My family loved it! The only thing I did differently was add a cup and half of leftover rice from the previous night's dinner. Delicious!

Nicole said...
