This recipe was so quick and easy but didn't taste like it. It was just like the soup that is served at a local Mexican restaurant that my husband and I frequent. I was so fond of that soup that I have asked my daughter to consider working there part time just to get the recipe; now she is off the hook. I added a 4oz can of chopped chili peppers to spice it up and since I like a more brothy soup I will increase the broth spices and salsa the next time I make it. Read More

This is a very easy recipe to make and very very flavorful. I highly recommend it to Tortilla soup lovers. To save time use regular tortilla chips. As good and much quicker. Read More

This was extremely easy and excellent. I scaled it to make 20 servings for a party and it was great. I used less cilantro and topped with mexican cheese. I also used store bought tortillas for ease. Definitely would make again. Read More

This recipe got rave reviews. I altered it a bit by using leftover whole chicken omitting the salsa and topping it with avocado and Jack cheese. Yummy. This ones a keeper. Read More

This was hearty and satisfying. I just had to add a bit more seasoning for my taste because I like things with a lot of zip. Overall I enjoyed it very much and will definitely make it again. Read More

This was okay in my opinion. Instead of frying the tortilla strips I buy plain tortilla chips and throw them in. I had to add more chili powder and omitted the corn (personal preference). It wasn't the best tortilla soup I've had but it wasn't the worst. I'd make it again with some tweaking. Read More

Great recipe. Doesn't take long to cook. I use store-bought tortillas so that makes one less step. I used 1/2 the fresh cilantro 1/2 the salsa amount the recipe calls for and more chili powder. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro plus either grated cheddar cheese or a TBSP of sour cream. Adjust spices accordingly for children. Read More

This was really good! This is the third recipe that I've tried for Chicken Tortilla Soup and they've all been very tasty. This is the first time that I've included beans and corn and I really liked it. I didn't fry the tortilla strips this time but plan to try it next time. Instead I offered store-bought tortilla chips sour cream and shredded cheese as garnish. Although I didn't my husband said he missed the avocado & lime that I added to a previous recipe. Next time I'll offer avocado and lime slices as garnish too. Either way this was a great soup! Read More
