I think I might just have an addiction to Chicken Tortilla Soup recipes. I’ve posted them a time or two before (you can see my previous recipes HERE or HERE. . . .) But I’m thinking this one might just be my favorite, because it’s so incredibly easy! I literally dumped the ingredients in Mrs. Potts in the morning, and eight hours later it was all cooked up for me. (Doesn’t that just make you happy?)
It also makes a bunch. My hubby and I enjoyed the leftovers for lunch all week, and I’m thinking I’ll still have enough to freeze some more once we’re tired of it! So, you’ll have dinner tonight, dinner tomorrow night, and dinner in six weeks on a night when you’re just too busy to cook. Seriously, what more could you ask for in a recipe?
Here’s how to make it in your kitchen tonight . . .
