    Yummy soup

    My soup was better than a restaurant. I tweaked the recipe with Rice A Roni Spanish Rice and baked chicken breast from my local deli. It was so flavorful. Can't wait to eat the leftovers!

    very tasty!

    Like another reviewer, I used canned chicken. I also added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of black beans. We had chicken quesadillas to go with it. So easy and delicious! Leftovers were great too.

    Sooo good!

    I made this recipe for the first time today, my husband loved it. It was super easy to make, and was delicious. The only thing I did differently was add a little more chicken stock because it was too thick. I will definitely make this again.

    Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

    This was amazing! I used my crock pot on low 6 hours and doubled the recipe. I omitted the cilantro and instead of 4 boneless chicken breasts I used two -12.5 oz. cans of breast meat. Next time I will use half the rice as it really thickened up the recipe since I used the crock pot. But as I said it was Amazing!! It is now on my "go-to" recipes. Thanks CKH!!
