This is one of my favorite comfort foods on those cold days outside. It's so colorful and full of flavor. You can spice it up or down and make it thick or soupier. I never measure so don't have exact amounts to provide - just improvise until it suits your taste buds!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The flavors in this chicken tortilla soup are simply smashing! A delicious and basic tortilla soup recipe that leaves the seasoning to your taste buds. The ranch-style beans and their sauce add a nice flavor. Corn gives the soup a pop of sweetness and a nice contrast in flavor. When all simmered, the final product was a soup better than we've had at any Mexican restaurant. Muy Bueno! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
