Reviews forHomemade Chicken Tortilla Soup
"really easy and everyone loved it."
"Thank you! This recipe is the best, cozy warm, a little spicy and very flavorfulit is now in my rotation, I have made it about 4 times (so far!)Can't thank you enough for this recipe!"
"This one's a keeper! Made a few adjustments ~ I added more minced garlic and since I didn't have tomato sauce, I used tomato paste and some water. And I used 2 cans of petite diced tomatoes without the garlic and onion and substituted parsley for the cilantro. Because it's so easy to put together it's a great weeknight dinner. I paired it with some jalapeno cheddar muffins and we garnished the soup with sour cream, blue corn chips, shredded cheddar and jalapeno slices. Will definitely make again!"
"pretty good! I didn't have cilantro but it was good."
"Wonderful flavors. Loved how easy it came together."
