Author Notes

This easy weeknight soup is a great one-pot meal. Although it has similar flavors, it is not a traditional sopa azteca.

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper, optional, to taste
  • 1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 15-ounce can petite diced tomatoes

  • Sour cream
  • Avocado, diced
  • Cilantro leaves

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Sauté the onions, garlic, and crushed red pepper until onions are soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes with its juices, and dried dill. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the shredded chicken and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. For a spicier soup add cayenne pepper to taste.
  4. To serve, put some crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl. Add soup then top with more crushed tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and avocado. Add a squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of Tajin, if desired.
