How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all soup ingredients in 6-quart saucepan or stockpot. Cook over medium-high heat 10-12 minutes or until soup comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 1 hour or until flavors are blended. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Cut each tortilla into fourths; place on top of each other. Cut each stack into 4 football shapes using kitchen shears. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine melted butter and garlic salt in small bowl. Brush both sides of football-shaped tortillas with melted butter mixture. Place onto large ungreased baking sheets. Bake, turning once, 8-10 minutes or until crisp. Top each football-shaped tortilla with cheese strips to resemble football laces, if desired; continue baking 1 minute. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Ladle soup into individual bowls; top each serving with cheese triangles, if desired. Serve tortilla crisps with soup.

Tip #1

Start with a fully cooked rotisserie chicken for super convenience! It is easiest to pull the meat off the bones when the chicken is still warm. Place shredded chicken in container with tight-fitting lid and store refrigerated up to 1 day before making soup.

Tip #2

Cut remaining pieces of tortillas into thin strips; toss with melted butter. Bake until crisp; serve on soups, salads etc.

Tip #3

Soup can be prepared in a 6-quart slow cooker. Combine all soup ingredients in slow cooker. Cover; cook on High heat setting 3 hours or Low heat setting 6 hours to blend flavors. Prepare football-shaped tortillas as directed.
