Chicken tortilla soup can be easily made without the most common allergens if you make sure ingredients don't contain hidden allergens. This soup is quick and easy to prepare so it is a staple in our regular meal rotation.
This chicken tortilla soup recipe is one of my "go to" soup recipes. It is extremely easy to throw together and it is made with ingredients that are easy to have on hand.
For example, I use canned beans and tomatoes which I always have in my pantry. I always have a bag of frozen corn on hand as well. In a pinch, I have even used a large can of chicken in place of fresh.
Another reason I like this soup is that it doesn’t require any special ingredients to make it “allergy free” as it is naturally free of the top 8 allergens. Just be sure to read labels of canned items as sometimes you'll find hidden allergens. Most notable is that broth can sometimes contain wheat/gluten.
The fact that this recipe calls for items that are easily found at the regular grocery store (and items that are usually in my pantry) makes it a good go-to when we have lunch or dinner guests. Everyone can enjoy this soup – food allergies or no food allergies!
Want to make two quick dinners?
Make chicken tacos and use the leftover chicken for this soup!
To make the chicken taco filling: Combine 1 pound of chicken breasts, 2 tablespoons taco seasoning and 1 -16 oz jar of salsa in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours or until chicken pulls apart.
It's SO easy!
Use the leftovers from that easy dinner to make this soup. It's like getting 2 meals for 1 and both are super easy! I do love to cook but even I can appreciate quick and easy dinners!
