Chicken Tortilla Soup

by Laura

This recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup comes from Melanie at The Sisters’ Cafe. I had never made anything like this before. The only Mexican soup I think I have ever made is taco soup. I left out the cilantro, because I did have any.

Originally, I thought I had corn tortillas in my refrigerator but, I didn’t so I used flour tortillas to finish off this soup. Now, I do think it would have been much better with the corn tortillas. This soup was so quick and easy to put together.

I always use flour totlillas in my tortilla soup…but I add them while the soup is simmering, which makes them much like a combination between a noddle and dumpling. I’m not a fan of crunchy things in my soup!

Thanks for sharing!
