    Best tortilla soup indeed, the whole family loved it. I followed the recipe exactly. I did use homemade corn tortillas in the soup and for garnish. We are “soupaholics,” so we’ll be enjoying this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    This is a great recipe! As others suggested I added a can of corn and a can of black beans (both drained, beans also rinsed) when I added the chicken. I used 1/4 tsp of cayenne, which gave it the extra flavor without making it too spicy for DD. Thanks for the recipe!

    I haven't made this yet, but it sounds delicious, especially with some of the added variations. The only modification I would make is to use "Pepper Jack" cheese , instead of Monterey Jack cheese.

    Had to substitute ground coriander for some of the cumin since I was out - gave it even more cilantro flavor!
