Authentic Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

I received this recipe from a friend at work who got it from a lady in Texas. It is exceptionally good authentic tortilla soup. I use already cooked rotisserie chicken from the store to make it quicker to put together.

This was a great soup with a lot of flavor. Like the previous viewer, I added pinto beans and a small amount of corn. I served with corn bread on this side. Thank you for sharing. Will definately make again.
