Tortilla Soup Recipe

Tortilla soup is a chicken soup variety served with tortillas. There are claims that this tortilla soup recipe originated from the southwest as a way to use old tortillas. It might be true, but I will attest that this does not taste like any old tortilla at all. In fact, this soup is very flavorful and fresh tasting.

This tortilla soup recipe is a bit spicy because of the Jalapeno. It is best served during the cold seasons. I also find this rich and comforting –maybe because of the avocado and cheese.
