Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup is one of my favorites. I’ve tired many different Tortilla Soup recipes over the years, this one is by far the best!

My friend Ari made this a few years ago for one of our Bunco nights and ever since then I’ve been craving her Tortilla Soup. She sent me the recipe and I made it for the first time last week for a dinner party. Everyone wanted the recipe. It was DELISH! It’s so easy and fresh. This is it people!!!! Enjoy.
