Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I perfected this recipe by "tweaking" to figure out a copycat recipe of Max and Erma's Chicken Tortilla Soup. It tastes so similar, and even if you haven't heard of Max and Erma's (it's a chain but only in certain areas), well, it's so yummy I just had to share it with the world. I usually throw everything into a slow cooker (my go-to method of making soups), but I'm sure it could be cooked stove top as well. I also like trying different add-ins (such as black beans, pepper slices), but those aren't in the original. Enjoy!!!
