My Chicken Tortilla Soup

sheryl wilcox


When my grandkids are sick,this is the soup I have to make for them. I keep ingredents on hand because I can't make for one grandaughter and not the other when they are sick. And they don't fall for "I don't have the ingredents" They know I can change the ingredents and it's still good. I had eaten a tortilla soup at a restarant,and decided to make my own. I think tis is better then thiers, and a lot better then canned. Or the frozen. Enjoy!!!
