Are you tired of the cold weather? There’s nothing like a big bowl of Chicken Tortilla Soup to warm you up. Cold weather is perfect for soup, and I chose chicken tortilla as I have dozens of tortillas in the freezer from Maria and Ricardo's . This soup started as a recipe off of a bag of Fresh Gourmet tortilla strips years ago and evolved into a little bit of this and a little bit of that. You’ve got all the key ingredients plus several garnishes on top; including cheese, sour cream and cilantro. Grab a spoon and dig in!
