We loved the taste of this soup.I changed a few things cause I didn't have a few of the ingredients. (Green Chilies, Diced tomatoes use Rotel instead). I use fresh chicken breast but cooked them with the onion and jalapeno. My family loved it will cook it again

This is the best recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot of them, but threw them away when I found this one. You can't go wrong with this recipe.

Our new favorite soup! I use leftover chicken or chopped up cooked chicken breasts instead of canned and add a can of salt free drained black beans and corn. Very flavorful!
