Easy Soup Recipe

for Kids

This dish is an easy soup recipe for kids but also a great recipe for the whole family. My grandkids love the chicken soup topped with the corn tortilla homemade strips my daughter makes. They taste so crispy and delicious and definitely have made this chicken tortilla soup meal a family favorite.

Homemade tortilla strips are the best kind of thin strips to eat with this delicious soup in my opinion. But if you’re short on time, you’ll still have a tasty soup when you serve it with store-bought chips.

Keep Soup Pantry Staples on Hand

Stay prepared for lean, under-the-weather, or chilly seasons and keep soup pantry staples on hand. Stock the pantry with all the canned foods needed to make all the soups you like. It’s also a good idea to store cans of chicken, roast beef, etc.

How do you get through lean times when grocery prices become outrageous? Follow these tips:

  • Purchase extra cans of foods as they go on sale.
  • Buy a large package of chicken breasts (5-6 pieces). Cook, shred, and chop them into small pieces. You can bake a pan of chicken and cheese enchiladas in a casserole dish with only one chicken breast.

Easy recipes are simple to make for any great soup if your pantry is stocked with the right ingredients. Here’s a list of ingredients to keep in the pantry and/or fridge for Mexican taco or tortilla soup recipes. Save the list, and take it with you next time you go to the grocery store.

  1. avocado
  2. cilantro
  3. garlic
  4. lime
  5. onions
  6. sour cream
  7. grated cheese
  8. chicken broth
  9. vegetable broth
  10. beans
  11. corn
  12. tomatoes & green chilies
