Chicken Tortilla Soup

TortillaSoup1 (1 of 1)

I’ve been making a lot of soups lately.

Because it’s Fall and the season just beckons a hot bowl of deliciousness…

Because we’ve been way too busy and it’s easy to prepare and have ready when we hit the door…

Because I’ve been taking more meals out to my Mom and her current health is restricting her to softer foods.

This is a wonderful, brothy Mexican Soup full of flavor and the toppings make it fun to assemble. And it’s healthy! I found the recipe on the Pioneer Woman blog – whose recipes I typically don’t make because in my opinion, they are not that healthy. I don’t work on a ranch all day to use up the calories. This one is worth making!
