Chicken Tortilla Soup

Outback  Steakhouse Copycat Recipe

Serves 10

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium jalapeno pepper, chopped
1/2 medium green pepper
4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups frozen corn
1/2 cup dry white wine or 1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
2 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 cup tortilla chips (optional)

Sauté onion, garlic, jalapeño and green pepper with olive oil in a large pot until soft. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the large pot and bring to a boil. After about 15 minutes, remove the chicken breasts and shred. (Two forks work well to pull the chicken apart!). Return shredded chicken to the pot and simmer an additional 45 minutes. Serve, topped with crushed tortilla chips if desired.


  1. Good, but not Outback's Tortilla soup.

  2. I have never in my life made a recipe that was so off from what it said it would be. This tastes NOTHING like Outbacks soup. I am gonna burn this one for sure.

  3. I've had the real thing twice lately. I'm sure it has cheese in it, quite a bit. I also think it had a tiny bit of very small chopped celery. The server asked me to try it and give my opinion since it was new in our restautant. I loved it. I agree, although this may be a good base, it need much more in it. I'm about to make it myself. I am adding some some taco seasoning and the other items I mentioned. I'm considering cooking mine in a crockpot to get all of the seasonings I add really into it. I just had some difficult surgery where I can't have all of the beans, etc. normally in this soup. I'll bet I can come up with something tasty though! I'll let you all know if I get good results!! 😉 Happy New Year!

  4. Definitely not outbacks style soup. Still looking for a good recipe

  5. This recipe is fantastic with some alteration, add some salt, then add more salt and the secret is limes, fresh squeezed lime juice makes it fantastic. i have made this over 10 times and salt + lime juice kick it up and make it better than outbacks. i also add 10-15 garlic gloves minced from fresh, also add 1 whole green pepper minced.

  6. Nothing close to Outbacks.Funny, I dont know who the poster is but they also posted this exact picture for a recipe for Boston Markets Chicken Tortilla Soup. At this point I think this recipe is a total joke.
