One night, I got it in my head that I HAD to have chicken tortilla soup. I didn't want to leave the house because of a huge snow storm. Using the ingredients I had sitting around, this is what I came up with!

This was made more for my other half than for me, & although I did enjoy it, too, he REALLY liked it! And, although I always have cooked chicken breast meat in the freezer (shredded or cubed), I took your hint & bought a roasted chicken from the deli so I could get dark meat as well! Worked out wonderfully! I topped mine with just a little shredded cheese & a bit of tortillas, while my other half went whole hog & did the cheese, the sour cream AND the tortillas! Both of us thoroughly satisfied, thanks to you! Made this especially for my vegetarian son & DIL & it was a big hit with all of us!
