Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

This chicken tortilla soup recipe is one of my favorite Mexican food recipes. When we think Mexican, we think spicy, and that is what makes this chicken tortilla soup so appealing.


With our group of friends, we take turns cooking and being invited to each other's homes to share exciting new recipes. When it was our turn we presented this chicken tortilla soup. It was an instant hit and all our friends asked for the chicken tortilla soup recipe. I guess people expected to see ordinary soup surrounded by bread baskets and black pepper, well not in this case. No condiments or bread are needed for this soup, only a soup spoon.


Knowing the success of this recipe, we gladly share it with our readers, as we believe everyone should experience the great taste of this tortilla soup and be able to cook it for themselves in the comfort of their own kitchens. My kitchen rules.


We are happy you are here and we hope you enjoy our chicken tortilla soup recipe. Please let us know what you think if you have tried this recipe.
