6 Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!


You guys.


I LOVED this recipe.


And, since I'm doing the 21 Day Fix right now (so far, so good!), I'm even more excited because it's (for the most part) 21 Day Fix approved!




I pre-cooked a ton of chicken that I got last week on sale (y'all, making it myself saved me a bundle), but you can use canned chicken or make it yourself too. Super simple, and if you want to make it a little more “man” approved, add some sour cream and tortilla chips.




Easy Peasy Chicken Tortilla (6 Can) Soup





  • Open the cans of corn, chicken broth, chunk chicken, black beans, and diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  • Pour everything into a large saucepan or stock pot. Simmer over medium heat until chicken is heated through.
  • Or, pour it all in slow cooker and cook on low for a few hours.
  • Enjoy!

21 Day Fix equivalents – makes 4-6 servings, 1 serving = 1/2 purple, 1 yellow, 1 red (make sure to use enough to chicken to count as a full serving of chicken

  1. I make Chicken Tortilla soup almost this same way, except I start with a frozen chicken breast and water and cook it ,covered for 30-45 minutes. Then I remove the chicken, add the cans of veggies, shred the now-cooked chicken, and serve it with cheese and tortilla chips. Sometimes I addd a little chili powder and/or cumin. This makes enough for the 2 of us with enough left over for one of us to have another bowl later. Cooking the chicken this way makes its own chicken broth and I know what is in it!

  2. I make this but use frozen chicken as well. I place 3-4 frozen chicken breast into the crockpot, cover with a whole jar of whatever salsa I like. Add the cans of corn and black beans and broth. An hour before I want to serve, I shred the chicken. Serve with sour cream , fritos or whatever else sounds yummy!

    Do you drain the black beans?

  4. Hi! Looks amazing, but your pic has a can of Cream of Chicken soup in it- is that a variation for non- 21 day fix?

    • Yes Rachel! It would not be perfect for the 21 Day fix (but if you get the Healthy Request version it wouldn’t be too terrible.) Hope that helps – I also love this one for the 21 Day Fix (I don’t have the exact container counts for it but it’s so yummy and good for you too!)
