Check out this video tutorial to see Rocky make this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe:



  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 pounds skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, 14.5 ounces
  • 1 can green chilies, 4 ounces
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon lite Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons Fage yogurt
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Dice up your chicken and carrots into bite size pieces. Chop up your green onions, cilantro and jalapeno.
  2. Open your cans of green chilies and diced tomatoes. (Do not drain)
  3. Now that all your prep work is done go ahead and pour your chicken stock into a pot and turn the heat on to medium. Place the next seven ingredients in the pot.
  4. Once your stock comes to a boil reduce the heat down to a simmer and let go for about 45 minutes.
  5. About 15 minutes before you're ready to serve up your soup turn your oven on to 400 degrees F.
  6. Cut up your corn tortillas into strips. I find using a pair of kitchen scissors works best. You'll want to use 1 corn tortillas per person. Spray down a cooking sheet with olive oil Spray and lay down your tortilla strips. Spray the tops of your tortilla strips down with olive oil spray to ensure crispiness. Pop into the oven and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until your tortilla strips are crispy.
  7. When 45 minutes are up check your chicken to make sure it is cooked through. Now you're ready to serve up your soup! Get your bowls out and ladle your soup in, top each bowl with tortilla strips, lite Mexican blend cheese, Fage yogurt and enjoy!
