    This soup is the best Tortilla Soup recipe I have ever made. The tortillas never seem to incorporate for me, and I am not a big fan of chunks of tomatoes, so I just use my hand blender & blend it a bit before I add the chicken. My family loves it and asks for it all the time.

    This soup is delicious! I had to make some adjustments, so I don't really know how it would taste as written. I didn't have chipotle pepper so left it out. I only had the canned pickled variety of jalapenos. My big mistake was substituting Thai red chili flakes for the red chili powder. Our soup was nigh onto too spicey hot to eat -- and that's pretty bad considering my husband adds fresh chilies to his food. Even with these 'problems' we thought it was a great combination of fresh ingredients, and I will prepare it again -- following the recipe more closely (as ingredient availability allows.) Thanks to Andi for her excellent blend of flavors. I've made this several times now, and we love it. Made it today for a crowd and everyone had seconds and thirds!
