      This is another great tortilla soup. Can feed 12 easy! I used fresh chicken broth for the water and the base added 3 cloves minced garlic and a minced jalapeno pepper. I placed the baby spinach in the bowls and let the soup wilt it. Gave it a nice texture. Loved the lime and would have been great with cilantro. Thanks!

      A very nice chicken soup variation! I add the zest of the lime before juicing it and also left out the mushrooms (not fond of those). I also used canned diced tomatoes. I also added some salt to taste. Everyone but my son loved it (but he doesn't like soup!). I would definitely make this again.
