Chicken Tortilla Soup

Laurie Roberts


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 more soupy. I never measure so don't have exact amounts to provide - just improvise until it suits your taste buds!

The flavors in this soup are simply smashing! We love cumin in the Test Kitchen, so seasoned the chicken pretty heavily. When all simmered, the final product was a soup better than I've had at any Mexican restaurant. Muy bueno! The Test Kitchen
