Hello Friends! It is a great time to make some soup for a meal.  This homemade Tortilla Soup recipe comes together easily with flavors of chicken, tortillas, and vegetables, for a wonderful hot meal.

It is a perfect winter soup as it is very comforting too. I usually make it by using a rotisserie chicken to save some time, but it can be made with baked chicken breasts or leftover cooked chicken.

If you like your soup spicy, you can add a little more chili powder or 1/4 teaspoon of jalapenos. I would recommend that you taste it first so that it has just the right about of spice you like.
