Most excellent soup. We have been searching for a long time for a tortilla soup just like the restaurants serve. Bravo! You did it! Thanks much.

FYI... At our local grocery, they have ready-made bbq chickens. When we buy one, we take the leftovers and debone and shred them and keep them in a zip-lock in the freezer for later use in the soup. They also have chicken fajita meat already cooked. These make wonderful additions as well as add to the flavor. ~~Eddie Shipman~~

This is my favorite soup out at restaurants, and I was thrilled to find this recipe. This was simple and absolutely delicious. I used fat free milk and it was really thick! Thanks.

Made this tonight and it was delicious! The tortillas didn't completely disappear for me, but I did "simmer" for about an hour, rather than "boil" for 45 minutes. I'll try a faster boil the next time. It didn't really matter, though. The consistency was still good. I didn't have tomatoes with chiles, so just used two cans of tomatoes. For the taco seasoning, I used 2 tablespoons of "Kittencal's Taco Seasoning", which is my go-to mix.

Amazing recipe. Made in crockpot allowing aroma to fill the NEIGHBORHOOD throughout the day. Forgot to add tortillas tho! :( This recipe offered so much in the way of fun and flavor, with veggies and finely chopped chicken. Topped off w/cilantro, avocado chunks and a tsp of Mexican Blend Cheeses. We ( family of 4) had enough for lunch the next day. Added an arugula salad w/apples and orange Muscat dressing as a side. Fabulous. Thank you for sharing.

UPDATE: I make this ALL the time!! Add extra jalepeno and pablano reguarly and use low fat cheese and skim milk. Add cilantro right at the end. Just awesome. We love this soup! Wow - enjoyed this very much. Changes I made include adding 2 mostly seeded jalepenos to the vegetable mix. I also added 1C white wine to the broth. I like my soup thick so I added about 15 tortillas (had extra liquid) and used my immersion blender to mix it all up. MOST EXCELLENT SOUP!
