Chicken Tortilla Soup

Jump to Recipe

Easy, healthy and room for lots of adaptions, here is my version of an old Cooking Light recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup.

DF Barb let me know that Saturday’s post didn’t have a recipe link for the chicken tortilla soup, so I thought I would type that up quickly and post here.

It’s based on a recipe we’ve been enjoying for over 20 years. It’s easy to adapt to personal tastes such as adding beans or jalapenos or sour cream. Maybe extra veggies like zucchini? Okay, don’t get ridiculous here.
