Recipe for Boston market chicken tortilla soup ?

Hello Marcia,

I'm finding two recipes. Try them both and see which one is closest. These are copycats - Boston Market has refused to give out their actual recipe.

The first one is here: Recipe Secrets

The second one is below.


Boston Market Chicken Tortilla Soup


 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
 1 small onion, diced
 2 tablespoons minced garlic
 2 jalapenos, finely diced
 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
 1 (14.5-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
 3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
 2 limes, juiced, plus wedges for garnish
 Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 1 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
 1 (8-inch) flour tortilla, grilled, cut into thin strips
 1 avocado, pitted, sliced
 1 cup shredded Monterey cheese


In a large saucepan heat the vegetable oil. Add the onions and cook for 2 minutes. Once the onions 
have softened add the garlic and jalapenos and cook for another minute. Pour the chicken broth, 
tomatoes and beans into the pot and bring to a boil. Once at a boil lower heat to simmer and add 
your chicken breasts. Cook the chicken for 20 to 25 minutes. Once chicken is cooked remove from pot. 
When cool enough to handle shred it and set it aside. Add lime juice and fresh cilantro to the pot. 
In a serving bowl add a mound of shredded chicken. Ladle soup over chicken and top with a lime wedge, 
grilled tortilla strips, avocado slices and cheese.
