The bulk of this recipe isn't too bad, but it definitely needed some kick. On top of adding a lot more salt we added 1/2 tsp of chipolte chili powder, a finely diced jalapeno, and 1/4 tsp cayenne. I cooked the chicken on the stove and then cut it up really small too. Served with crushed tortilla chips and cheese. Yummy!

PERFECT! Exactly what I was looking for. Living 6 months of the year in Baja, we fell in love with Tortilla Soup. This recipe was exactly what we could not get translated from Spanish in Baja. We are in Love !
