Recipe: Chicken Tortilla Soup


I've been trying to cook some of the original recipes I posted on this blog, and re-photograph them with a higher quality camera.

This one just needed to be photographed, period. I know soup isn't the easiest thing to take a picture of, but what was I thinking posting a recipe with no picture?

Anyways, this soup is a favorite in my house. It is spicy, hearty and delicious and so easy to make.
