Martina McBride's Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
Martina McBride is not shy about her adoration of making, serving, and eating soup, especially in her 2018 cookbook Martina's Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life. "I do love making soups and I feel like it's something you can put on the stove and let it simmer all day and it makes the whole house smell good," she tells Southern Living, noting what a great option soups are when cooking for a crowd. "Honestly, you could put on a big pot of a soup and a crusty loaf of bread, and nobody's gonna complain about that," she quips.In her cookbook published by Oxmoor House, the Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup is certainly a fan-favorite. "Flavorful and delicious, this is a creamy, comforting version of the classic. Make it spicier by adding more jalapeño or smokier with chipotle chili powder in place of the regular chili powder. I prefer fresh corn here, but frozen will do in a pinch," McBride writes in the headnote accompanying the recipe. Read on for the recipe below. You can buy Martina's Kitchen Mix on Amazon here.
