Herdez Red Guajillo Chile Chicken Tortilla Soup

As an AllRecipes Brand Ambassador Program, I am lucky enough to get goodies about once a month to try out. I get to share my thoughts on the products with AllRecipes, and of course here as well! This month we all received various flavors of Herdez brand sauces. I received Red Guajillo Chile and also Tomatillo Verde. I decided to use the Red Chile sauce in a Chicken Tortilla Soup and it was so GOOD!! I used the whole jar for my recipe, and personally thought the recipe was a little on the spicy side (that didn't stop me or Kent from polishing off our bowls though!) and would recommend starting with half of the jar and then adding more to your personal taste bud's preferences!

We topped ours with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese and really enjoyed this meal. Filling, flavorful, and absolutely delicious!!

Herdez Red Guajillo Chile Chicken Tortilla Soup
Serves: 6-8

  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken, diced
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/2-1 12-oz jar Herdez Mexican Cooking Sauce - Red Guajillo Chile
  • 12-oz water
  • 1 15-oz can corn, drained
  • 1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15-oz can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
  • 1 cube chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup V-8 juice
  • 6 small corn tortillas, cut into strips
  • Additional toppings if desired: diced avocado, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, diced tomato, sour cream, cilantro, hot sauce, etc.
  1. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Add onions and chicken; sauté until onions are tender and chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place a large soup pot on the stove and add chicken and onion mixture, Herdez Red Guajillo Chile sauce, water, corn, black beans, diced tomatoes, chicken bouillon, and V-8 juice. Bring to a simmer, cover and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. 10 minutes before soup is ready, lay tortilla strips on a baking sheet and bake in pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until nice and crispy.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls, add additional toppings if desired, and add a few tortilla strips.
