recipe | chicken tortilla soup

Soup, in it's many varieties, is one of my favorite foods. I love combining different flavors & textures in one meal. 
So perfectOf course, soup is always best on cold winter days and I know it's spring, but winter weather isn't 
quite finished here in Colorado, so I am not letting go of soup yet. Yummy soup makes these in between 
winter & spring days not as bad. Anyway, here is one of my favorite soups...
