Ditch croutons and dig in to this zingy Mexican veg soup with tortilla chips.

  • DifficultyEasy
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 chipotle in adobo sauce, minced
1 tablespoon chilli powder
2 teaspoons salt
6 cups chicken broth, low-sodium canned
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen and thawed
1 ripe tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup coriander leaves

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chipotle, chili powder, and salt and cook until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add the corn and cook for 5 minutes more.

Pull the saucepan from the heat and stir in the tomato, chicken, coriander, and lime juice. Divide the tortilla chips among 4 warmed bowls, ladle the soup on top, and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Before halving the limes, microwave them for a few seconds and roll them under the palm of your hand to release the juice from the pulp.

Add a swirl of chilli and tortillas.
