    SoCalCookerGal's Note:

    I love chicken tortilla soup. After eating it several times at one of my favorite restaurants I decided to make it myself. This is the recipe I came up with. In this recipe the measurements are not exact as I tend to not measure. It's based on my taste buds. Feel free to add or lessen to make it suitable for your taste buds.

    1. 1
      In a large stock pot place the chicken and sprinkle with garlic salt. Add the water until its about 4 inches above the chicken. Wash the lime then cut it in half and add it to the pot. Bring water to a boil and continue until the chicken is cooked throughly. About 1-1 1/2 hours.
    2. 2
      Remove the chicken and let it cool. Remove the limes and skim the broth to remove fat. Shred the chicken after it has cooled off and set aside.
    3. 3
      To the broth add the chicken bouillon and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
    4. 4
      Now add in your canned tomatoes and all your spices. I like to add in about 8 shakes of hot sauce (I use Cholula) Bring to a boil and add in the the zucchini and carrots and the shredded chicken.
    5. 5
      When the vegetables are done cooking your soup is done!
