I thought this was terrific. I made some modifications to make it lower fat. I only used 2T of cream cheese and then once the stock, black beans and tomatoes were added I let them simmer for a bit before pureeing them with my immersion blender. After that, I added the chicken, some frozen corn kernals and more diced tomatoes (without the juice), lime zest and lime juice. This is a go to in my house now! Thanks for the recipe. I am sure the full fat version is decadent!

This soup was great! I was worried about how powerful the cream cheese taste would be - whether it would taste chalky in the end - but you can't distinguish its taste once you add everything else. Adding both of the limes and cilantro were key! Definitely will make this one again; thanks for the recipe

My husband has been asking for a chicken tortilla soup that was creamy but not too rich. This recipe is perfect in both regards and easy enough to make for a weeknight. Love, love, love it! Thanks, so much. Joan

Living and cooking in San Diego, I love your title - but love your recipe even more. A much over-due thumbs up!

Thanks! I wasn't sure what to call it as it goes by many names around here. My friend Eric always asks me when I'm making that Taco Soup again. My husband calls it Chicken Tortilla Soup but I thought that was misleading. So I settled on "Totally Unauthentic Tortilla Soup."
