    Dawn's Note:

    Tortilla Soup is so good it tastes complicated, but it's not. It is actually a very easy soup to prepare. My family likes to assemble their own soup. The heart of this soup is a delicious chicken and shrimp base with chopped avocados, cheese and crispy tortilla strips available to top as you like. The kids really like "creating" their own soup with the toppings. I lived in Texas where this is a popular soup, it is a combination of 2 recipes. One recipe came straight from Mexico and one I found in a cookbook.

      DEE-licious!!! My mexican DH was craving a soup that his mom used to make. He found this recipe and thought it sounded like a good substitute. I used Rotel tomatoes with lime & cilantro, but still used the lime & cilantro called for by the recipe. I made a big pot, and I think it's better the 2nd day! Definitely a keeper!

      I agree - great soup! And it is easy to add to - I added a can of corn and can of Barracho beans. I also used leftover smoked chicken. I, too, used tortilla chips. Everyone really loved this - this is a realy keeper! Thanks!

      Another 5 star rating! This is so great. It is light but full of flavor. The tomatoes I used were petite diced tomatoes with jalapenos. And I used tortilla chips - I simply broke them up and put them in the bottom of the bowls before serving the soup. I also tried this with some leftover cooked white rice instead of tortillas. Yum. This recipe is a keeper, thanks Dawn!
