Chick-Fil-A Has Good News For Fans Of Its Chicken Tortilla Soup

Fall, with its cooler weather, often calls for a warm and satisfying bowl of soup, and Chick-fil-A customers will be happy to know that the Atlanta-based chicken chain is bringing back a fan favorite: Chicken Tortilla Soup, a spicier alternative to Chick-fil-A's classic hearty Chicken Noodle Soup. According to the Chick-fil-A website, this seasonal menu item features a creamy base, shredded chicken breast, navy and black beans, and vegetables. It is topped with seasoned corn tortilla chips. And November 1 marks its official return to the menu, according to Chick-fil-A's blog, The Chicken Wire.

Chicken Tortilla Soup has been a seasonally offered item since 2012, according to a company press release (via PR Newswire). The addition of the soup came in the wake of the popular launches of its Spicy Chicken Sandwich and the Spicy Chicken Biscuit. When it was first introduced, the company said the soup had been a regular menu item at the chain's Dwarf House and Truett's Grill restaurants in Atlanta and had "developed a loyal following" at those locations.

Chick-fil-A fans enjoy this seasonal soup

As of this writing, the return of Chick-fil-A's Chicken Tortilla Soup hasn't yet been announced on the chain's social media channels, but in previous seasons, it had great reviews from the restaurant's customers. Last year, Redditor u/lizirene wrote, "I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. I haven't stopped thinking about it since and have gone out of my way to drive to CFA a few times for it." DanglingDear agreed, "I'm with you! I had the soup for the first time on Saturday and have thought about getting it again each meal since!!!!!!"

On a separate subreddit, needmoarbass commented, "Great soup. Has a tiny bit of heat and is very filling." Neravariine added, "I go to Chick-fil-a just to experience it. I can get a spicy chicken sandwich at a lot of places but a good, thick soup?" According to The Chicken Wire, Chicken Tortilla Soup will only be around for as long as supplies last.
