One thought on “Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe Best of White Chili and Tortilla Soup!

  1. We received so many compliments on the Chicken Tortilla Soup we served at the luncheon. Realized the next day that the avocadoes were still in a bag in the closet! The soup is delicious with or without some additions. It was so good I fixed it for a casual supper meal for 22 women on Friday night. It was a big hit and so was the Red Velvet Cake Trifle. Thanks Holly for some wonderful suggestions at the luncheon in Clinton on Wednesday. Looking forward to you being in Clinton again.
