This Chicken Tortilla Soup is an Americanized version of the Mexican Sopa de Tortilla. It has a chicken broth base and is brimming with onion, pepper, tomatoes, tortillas, chicken, cheese, and spices. I used one Jalapeno pepper, since it came in my CSA box. If you like a lot of spice, chop up a second one and toss it in. I only added a pinch of cayenne for Evan’s sake.
We all loved this soup and went for more after reaching the bottom of our bowls (even Evan!). Next time I will double the recipe so Chad has enough for lunch the next day. I love soups and Chad normally doesn’t, so I am happy to find recipes that both of us enjoy.
