Nearly Famous Chicken Tortilla Soup

“It would seem that everyone has their own version of tortilla soup. Some are thick and cheesy; some thin and watery. I prefer a thin, but not watery, broth-based tortilla soup with LOTS of veggies and toppings. I developed this recipe years ago and would venture to say it is my MOST requested recipe. Both to personal friends or blog readers, I email this recipe constantly! So here it is, ASP’s nearly famous Chicken Tortilla Soup, have at it!”
