    blueguitargirl1985's Note:

    There are a lot of chicken tortilla soup recipes here, and I have hesitated to post mine because of it, but this is honestly THE BEST soup I have ever had (and I've tried quite a few!). It is a bit spicy, but it is so satisfying, and feeds a hungry crowd! This recipe, like most soup recipes is pretty loose on the measurements, seasonings are very much "to taste." If you like more corn, add more corn, want more carrots, go ahead! You get the idea.

      Delicous and pretty easy to make. This is the first soup that I have made from scratch. Next time I will cut down on the ingredients a little bit, my pot wasn't large enough to hold everything and it started overflowing. It makes a TON of soup. I forgot to add the garlic, but everything tasted great anyway. Thanks for the recipe!!

      I made this for Cinco De Mayo, and let me tell you, it was a HIT! It's really creamy, and spicy, (I made it spicier for our taste) There is just something really satisfying about it. The tortilla crisps give a nice crunchy texture that makes it special, the chicken gets very tender, and absorbs the flavor, nice fresh carrots, and celery. Then there is the gooey cheese on top.. Yum! It is literally making my mouth water thinking about it! Thanks for posting this recipe!

      I made this because I wanted something warm, and spicy. I honestly never expected it to be THIS good! My husband ate so much, he had to take a nap! I agree, this may well be the best soup I have ever eaten! Bravo!!!!
