Learn how to make the BEST healthy chicken tortilla soup ever! This tortilla soup recipe is not only packed with nutritious ingredients, but it's also super easy to make and so flavorful. Everyone, can enjoy this one - it's gluten-free, paleo and as clean as they come! My vegan friends, can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and replace the chicken with beans. An easy one pot dinner that the whole family will love!
Add onion/tomato mixture with 2 cups water (only if not using canned tomatoes) to high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Transfer blended mixture back to saucepan and add broth, chicken, carrots and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 to 30 minutes, or until carrots are tender.
Top each serving with preferred toppings; such as lime juice, avocado, cilantro, cheese, Greek yogurt and/or tortilla chips
*If using canned diced tomatoes and juices, omit the additional 2 cups water.
**For a vegan version replace chicken broth with low-sodium organic vegetable broth, omit chicken and consider adding 2 cans black, red kidney or pinto beans.
