Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by johnnybravo

This was the first dish that I ever learned how to cook. My wife loves it. I have 3 small children so when they are eating it, I leave out the Chipotle chile. I think this originally came from either Mens Health or Mens Fitness magazine. Also it doesn't hurt to sprinkle on some shredded cheddar when you are done.

OMG I don't know why I haven't reviewed this yet, but this is my main recipe now for chicken tortilla soup! It is so good! My kids and husband love it too! When I tell them I am making chicken tortilla soup everyone is super excited because this is an awesome recipe! I use 2 cans of diced green chiles, and add a can of black beans to it, yummy!! We also like to put a little cheese, sour cream and avocado on top!!! Super good!
