Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Angela Polly

My friend, Leda, made this delicious soup for me when I stayed with her while living in Ethiopia. It's super simple and packed with a southwestern flavor. Perfect soup for the winter - it'll heat you up both in temperature and spice! Not to mention, it's a snap to make!

A very tasty chicken toritlla soup. Topping it with cheese and sour cream at the end further adds to the flavor.
