    Darlene Summers's Note:

    I first ate this soup at the Lone Star Restaurant in Carbondale Ill. I fell in love with it and of course they won't give up the recipe so I figured it out for myself. Here is my version of it--tastes just like theirs, and is very simple.

      I live by Carbondale Ill. and also fell in love with the tortilla soup at Lone Star Restaurant. I found this recipe online after trying to find a way to duplicate the soup at home. It's wonderful and tastes just like the soup at Lone Star. Thank you for posting this recipe on here!

      Sounds like theee soup, but I would add hamburger instead of chicken, both are good. Add garlic next time for a dash of sass.
