Pretty much my favorite soup in the world. It has a thick broth rather than a thin, clear one. Yum! My family now has their own substitutions for the bullion and the cream of chicken soup (it still tastes as good with the substitutes) but this is the original recipe from my mom.

YUM I loved it! I substituted cornstarch for flour and it was still thick and creamy. I added canned (rinsed) white beans and white hominy because I wanted more bulk without taking away from the beautiful creamy white color. I used Mexican style diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro added. I cut up corn tortillas with scissors to make thin strips, fried them til crispy and served the soup with a handful of those and cut up cilantro on top.
