Rachael Ray Chicken Fajita Tortilla Soup

"This looks just fantastic on TV that I am saving it here to try in the very near future! I'm guessing on the size of the bag of tortilla chips because it just said "1 bag" in the recipe."

    I love chicken tortilla soups, and I'm always looking for different twists on it to spice things up. I had a package of fresh pre-cut fajita peppers and onions, so this recipe was a perfect fit. I added a little taco seasoning and some garlic powder and cumin to season the soup and a couple pinches of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes. Don't substitute anything for the fire-roasted tomatoes! They make a huge difference! And don't skimp on the toppings! Cheddar cheese, green onion, avocado, sour cream, tortilla chips..yum! Delicious soup!
