Chicken Tortilla Soup FINAL

Make sure to repin this recipe

One of my favorite dishes to have is a nice bowl of soup. Last week here in Portland, OR we had a mild snow storm and all I wanted to do is stay indoors ( which I totally did – binge watching tons of tv on Netflix).

While I was watching my 15th straight episode of Bob’s Burgers I ate this yummy soup.

This soup has it all – what I love is you throw it all into a pot and let it slowly cook together. It is the type of soup you can have for dinner, lunch, and even breakfast.

Chicken Soup

You are going to need precooked chicken. All I did was cook up a couple chicken breast with tons of lime, chili powder, and pepper.

For the seasoning for the soup – I did not add extra salt. I simply added garlic powder and pepper to the soup. Try and not add salt because the broth has a ton.

For the tortilla strips I actually took corn tortilla and cut them up and lightly fried them in a pan. But if you are going for a easier way – simply crunch up some tortilla chips

I also served with some cilantro ( I seriously could eat tons of cilantro…. like half the bowl …. but I digress)

If you are wanting to add something to the dish – add a dollop of sour cream it really is amazing
