Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I love soupaa. I love soup even more when it’s cold outside. and I love mexican flavored soup.

So it makes sense that – Chicken tortilla soup is my favorite go to soup in the winter! Not only is this soup a broth based soup (nutrient dense) but it has tons of veggies, herbs, chicken & tasty flavor.

Yesterday my house smelled like a mexican cantina – and I was totally okay with it…haha I love when the soup is just bubbling away and your house smells more like home.

Alright-alright I’ll get down too it.
