Chicken Tortilla Soup


This was an experiment that turned out pretty good. I will probably do it again as I really like the enchilada taste but don't feel like I can spend the calories on my Chicken Enchilada Soup very often. If you wanted to thicken this up you could easily make a slurry with a couple of tablespoons Masa Harina and water or broth and add it to the pot. The Masa would add a corn tortilla taste that if you are leaving the corn chips or tortilla strips off would be nice to have.
