“This is a favorite among us Texans, and there are so many diverse ways to prepare it. I have experimented with more entailed recipes, and came up with this one which is just as delicious as the labor intensive ones. Pass around chopped cilantro, cubed avocados, and crumbled Jack cheese for garnish.”

This was my first time makeing tortilla soup. Ive tasted others but I have to say this was so far the best. I tweaked it a bit following other suggestions. I fried the tortilla strips to make crunchy, and then added green chili instead of jalapenos, and skipped the onion rings. I served it with a dallop of fat free sour cream and monterey jack cheese in the bottom of the bowl, ladled soup over this then added crispy tortilla strips and cilantro with a lime wedge. We loved it, it was great!

This soup is fantastic tasting AND healthy! I did two bnls/sknls chicken breasts in the crock pot with chicken stock to get them shreddable then used the stock in the recipe (after straining out the fat). I was worried about the slices of jalepeno being too spicy, but they weren't at all- as a matter of fact, I'll probably add an extra next time for a little more kick. I think next time I'll skip the broiled onion rings, because they didn't really add much for me,and I wound up scorching half of them anyway! My husband said he loved it, but that it was different from what he was used to(the broth was clear, not red). I highly recommend this soup!

Just did the recipe last night for the 1st time. 2 thumbs up! Wife loved it. I love it. Friends love it. I did improvise a bit. I used a rotisserie chicken already cooked in the deli and just deboned and took all the meat from it to try and save some time and added about 1/3 cup of cilantro to the recipe. Also, I fried the tortilla strips and dusted them with chili powder while frying them. But, as stated earlier, I got rave reviews for my improvisations. This one is definitely staying in the rotation :o)
