Fast, Easy, Healthy Seafood Tortilla Soup

Fast & Easy Dinner: Shrimp and Tortilla Soup

Shrimp Tortilla Soup

My current favorite in the weeknight meal rotation is a Latin-inspired soup that I've designated the ultimate essential soup recipe. It's also the ideal fast and easy dinner. This departure from the more conventional chicken tortilla soup is light, low-fat, and gluten-free, yet so imbued with smoky, spicy, bright flavors. Best of all, it comes together in — no joke — 10 minutes! The recipe's designed for one, but can easily be doubled or tripled for a few. Want the technique? Then read on.

  1. 1 corn tortilla, cut into thin strips
  2. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  3. Coarse salt
  4. 1/4 small yellow onion, diced small
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 1/2 to 1 teaspoon chipotles in adobo, chopped
  7. 1-3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  8. 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn
  9. 4 ounces medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  10. Diced avocado, fresh cilantro, and lime, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss tortilla with 1 teaspoon oil; season with salt. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add onion and garlic; season with salt. Cook until onion softens, about 3 minutes. Add chipotle and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  2. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add corn and cook until tender, 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook until opaque throughout, 1 minute. Serve soup with tortilla strips and desired toppings.

Serves 1.
