Cream of Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by MailbagMary

This soup is a wonderful change from the tomato based tortilla soups. This one is a combination of chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, salsa, and half and half. The original recipe is from allrecipes. com, but I have added a few of my own touches to it. We love this soup, and it can be "heated up" by the addition or reduction of the jalapenos added to it.

This may not be an honest rating because I made so many changes, but the idea was perfect, and even with a bunch of modifications I made a huge pot of soup that, like so many other tomato-based recipes, tasted so much better the second day. Whatever you do, make a double batch! And have plenty of cilantro on hand...with tortilla chips and shredded cheese...mmmm!
