The Super Q Blender is AMAZING! It has so many different uses and I am so excited to try them all out.

The programmed soup button makes making soups so easy to make. You pour all your ingredients in, press the button and then 6 minutes later you have smooth hot soup (yes it heats it up!).

I don’t have a Super Q, can I make this tortilla soup recipe on the stove?
Of course! Even though I totally recommend getting the Super Q, I completely understand not having one. It’s a great kitchen tool but not necessary.
How to make authentic chicken tortilla soup on the stove:
If making this entire recipe on the stove top sauté the onions, garlic, and jalapenos in a large stock pot. Once done sautéing add all the ingredients (except the avocado and tortillas) to the large stock pot.
Make sure to chop up the cilantro and tomato of the stove top version.
Bring soup to a boil and remove from heat. Top with diced avocado and fried tortilla strips.
You can eat the soup as is, however it won’t be creamy like that made in the Super Q.
You can use an immersion blender in this soup until it is all combined, or puree it in a food processor. Any way you make it and blend it (or not blend it) it will taste delicious!
Can I freeze tortilla soup?
Yes! Place soup in a zip loc bag or another air tight container and freeze. Should last up to 3 months in the freezer.
To reheat simply run warm water over the baggie or container until the frozen soup with come away from the container. Place in a medium sauce pot and heat over medium heat until warm.
Not only is this soup super fast to make it is so flavorful. The blended onion, garlic, cilantro, along with the lime juice and jalapeno give this so much flavor!
I grew up getting tortilla soup from one of the only decent Mexican restaurants in town and this brings me back!
Feel free to add some cheese too! YUM!
I know a lot people look for Vitamix soup recipes- but now it’s time for Super Q soup recipes!
Honestly although I love my Super Q blender, it is very similar to a Vitamix or any other high-power blender. So, that being said, this recipe will work in the Vitamix!
Who would have thought a blender tortilla soup could taste so good!
