Budget-Friendly Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup is a budget friendly staple in our household! It goes the distance and is super affordable. All of the ingredients for this meal cost me $24.60 which came out to about $4.10 per serving!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes Total Time: 75 minutes

Serves: 6


3 cloves of Garlic, minced

1 Yellow Onion, diced

1 Jalapeno, diced

2 tbsp Butter

1 16oz can Diced Tomatoes

1 16oz can Black Beans

1.5 tsp Cumin

1.5 tsp Chili Powder

Salt & Pepper

2lbs Chicken Breast

48 oz Chicken Stock

1.5 cups of Frozen Corn

6 Corn Tortillas

  1. Dice your onion, garlic and jalapeno and add it to your pot with butter. Saute until the onions start to become translucent or 2-3 minutes.

  2. Add the diced tomatoes and black beans to the pot. Then add in the seasonings.

  3. Dice your chicken into cubes, add to the pot and cover with your chicken stock.

  4. Cover the pot and put the heat on medium-low and let simmer for about an hour – the longer, the better!

  5. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve, add in the corn.

  6. Slice your corn tortilla into thin strips, place on a baking sheet, and put them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes or until crispy.

  7. Top your soup with the crispy tortilla strips and your favorite fixings (sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese, etc)!
