Chicken Tortilla Soup


This is a seriously easy soup to toss together and has some of the most amazing mouth-watering taste-bud-bursting flavors that you will ever come across.

Do not forget to add the lime at the end! The addition of the lime juice changes the flavor of the soup entirely and adds a whole new level of depth to taste.
