  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced (or 2 Tbsp. garlic paste)
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 15 oz. cans cannellini beans reserve 1 can
  • 2 10 oz. cans diced tomatoes with green chiles such as Rotel

  • 1 whole roasted or rotisserie chicken bones removed, meat shredded

  • Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add 1 finely chopped medium yellow onion to the pot and sauté with 2 cloves minced garlic (or 2 Tbsp. garlic paste) until the onion softens and becomes translucent.
  • Stir in 2 tsp. cumin, 2 tsp. dried oregano, and 1 tsp. sea salt.
  • Add 2 cans cannellini beans to a blender and puree. Reserve the remaining 1 can cannellini beans to add to the soup later for whole beans. Do not drain beans before blending.
  • Stir the pureed beans into the pot. Add 2 cans diced tomatoes with green chiles, 1 can of cream-style corn, and 1 can of whole kernel corn to the pot. Do not drain any of the cans.
  • Add shredded chicken from one whole roasted or rotisserie chicken to the pot.
  • Mix in the remaining 1 can of cannellini beans and 1 can of black beans, stir to combine.
  • Let the soup simmer over medium heat until fully heated through, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Add juice of 1 lime and season to taste. Top with tortilla strips to serve.



  • Do not drain any of the cans of their liquid or the texture of your creamy chicken tortilla soup will not come out right!
  • Top with sliced avocado, fresh lime, tortilla strips, sour cream, cheese, and other toppings as desired. It's delicious!
