    This may be my new favorite soup! I followed the recipe as written, refrigerated overnight and heated some for lunch today. Out of this world, even without the toppings. I crumbled a few baked tortilla chips to my bowl just  to add a little crunch. Highly recommend!

    Holy yum, I can’t wait to try this! We always do Friday Night – Mexican night and I tend to order their chicken tortilla soup, but it’s NOT cheap and it’s surely not calorie conscious. I can’t wait to try this at home! Mmmm :)

    Hahaha – I read the first line of your post ” There’s nothing better than a warm comforting bowl of soup.” – and I thought — YESSS!! Then I read “Well… maybe one thing. A warm comforting bowl of soup that’s not going to settle around your mid-section.” And I though … ommmgg yes hahaha .. I feel this way about a lot of comfort foods ;)
