Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

One of the gals from college gave me this recipe. She and I used to swap out on cooking meals because we were the only ones who like to cook on our floor. I was thumbing through my recipes working on "Culinary Corner" for the easy winter soups article. It was SOOO filling and good. At the time, I thought it was different and really, I'm really leery about trying new stuff. VERY quick and easy for you Mom's who need something fast!

Super easy and super yummy. I added one extra ingredient and that was a white queso dip with jalapenos. This is my new fav soup. Thanks for sharing it!!
