    KGCOOK's Note:

    I first had this at a pot luck at work. Got the recipe from a friend but decided it needed some tweaking. You may add as much heat as you like or keep it toned down. Add taco toppings too if you like when serving. It does take a little work but in the end it pays off. Note: You won't use all the reserved broth. There is a large amount saved just to make sure you have enough. The chicken soup in this recipe is the creamy color one not the yellow. In place of the chips you can use taco shells broken in halves. Or you can use the Corn tortillas, omit softening them. Using the chips give more corn flavor. Prep time does not include prep time for chickens.
