Applebee's Cheese Chicken Tortilla Soup

Applebee's is a restaurant in the States and parts of Canada.
I really like their food.



  • 1.

    Sauté oil, garlic and onions in large pan or Dutch oven until soft.

  • 2.

    Add numbers 4 through 13. Bring to low boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

  • 3.

    Cut tortillas into 1/4-inch strips and fry in oil or spray with oil and bake at 400 degrees F (while soup is cooking). Sprinkle with salt if desired.

  • 4.

    Thoroughly mix flour and water, then whisk into soup. Bring to a low boil, then simmer 5 minutes.

  • 5.

    Add chicken and simmer 5 minutes.

  • 6.

    Stir in sour cream and cheese (more or less of each, depending on taste). Ensure 165 degrees F serving temperature.

  • 7.

    After serving soup, pile tortilla strips into a "haystack" shape on top of the soup.

  • 8.

    Optional: garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.


I also use curly endive as a substitute for the garnish.
