The easiest chicken tortilla soup ever, but incredibly delicious! It is one of my family’s staples that we make time and time again.
I am sooo excited to share with you my Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe as part of yet another progressive blog dinner from my amazingly talented group of blogging buddies! Did you catch our Spring and Summer Progressive Dinners? This one is just as impressive, I promise!
This season’s theme is none other than COMFORT FOODS! Seriously…..YUM! Are you even kidding me with all of this deliciousness?! I will be sharing one of my family’s go-to recipes. This Chicken Tortilla Soup is so amazingly simple, and it makes a huge batch. I usually double it and freeze some of it. It’s not quite as perfect after it has been frozen, but it is still very yummy, and I love having meals in the freezer.
I would classify this recipe as a “comfort food” both because it is so irresistibly tasty, and because we found this recipe when we were in need of comfort. My mother passed away ten years ago, and all of the ladies from church and the neighborhood brought us meals for awhile afterward. One of the neighborhood ladies brought us this soup and my dad was OBSESSED. I mean OBSESSED! He asked her for the recipe and she looked horrified. She stammered a bit about how it was a secret family recipe, but my dad just stood there looking hopeful and she couldn’t say no to the sad, young widower who wanted her soup recipe. And we have been making it monthly since then! Haha. Poor lady. The recipe cat is out of the bag, and I am here to share the goods with you. Enjoy! 🙂
