Chicken Tortilla Soup



1 rotisserie chicken
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
½ onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
½ red bell pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can mild Rotel tomatoes (or use “original” for a spicier soup)
4 cups chicken stock
3 Tbsp. tomato paste
2 cans whole black beans
2 Tbsp. Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Chili Powder (add more to taste)
1 Tbsp. Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Taco Seasoning (add more to taste)
2 tsp. Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Fajita Seasoning (add more to taste)
Tortillas or chips
Garnish (sour cream, cheese, guacamole, etc.)


  • De-bone and shred rotisserie chicken and set aside.
  • In 1 Tbsp. of oil, sauté onions and bell peppers until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and spices and stir until aromatic, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in de-boned chicken, black beans, Rotel tomatoes, tomato paste, and chicken stock.
  • Bring the soup to a boil, and then simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water if needed, and season to taste.

Prior to serving, gently stir in tortilla strips, or serve with chips. Garnish with your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

Bolner’s tip: For the perfect guacamole, mash up avocados and sprinkle in our secret ingredient, Fajita Seasoning, for a delicious topping that everyone will enjoy!
