Heidi's Chicken Tortilla Soup
The tastiest tortilla soup I've ever tried! Tortillas in the broth give it a full-flavored body, and grilled chicken add smokiness to this satisfying soup!"Fantastic! I omitted step 1 (I already had leftover grilled chicken) which made the preparation quicker and easier. My family loved this soup. I will make this again, for sure!" - jobaybe
