This is our favorite version of tortilla soup. I make extra chicken and use the leftovers in this soup. I buy the premade tortilla strips and use them instead of making my own. My grocery store started carrying them with the salad toppings and they work perfectly in this.

I love this soup.. I also kicked it up a notch by adding 1 can of black beans and 1 can of whole corn. My family loves it and calls it Chicken Corn Totilla Soup..

This is one of my favorite soup recipes! I substitute fat free half and half for the cream for added health benefits. My friend was skeptical but was impressed with the outcome!

My daughter and I were looking for a thicker, heartier style soup. This was thin, not a lot of substance, but did have good flavor. We'll keep looking....

My husband and I tried this soup on a whim...we had company over and we loved it so very much. Then I lost the recipe for a long time. I'm thrilled that I've found it again and I'm making it for company tomorrow. I suggest to use the recipe as is, using lower fat substitutes if you like. If you tend to love veggies, as I do, make a different tortilla soup altogether. I've done that as well. This one stands alone. So yummy!

Easy and tasty too! Since I did not have the tomato puree, green peppers, or jalapeno pepper son hand I just used salsa. I used a crock pot instead of putting it on the stove. Yummy!!
alissauce January 15, 2008 COMMENT: To the comments before me about the cream-
In almost every recipie the ingredients are in order to the directions, so you put the cup of cream in at the same time you put the sour cream.

This soup is delicious! My 14-yr-old son begs me to make it at least once a month.
Sheesh December 3, 2007 COMMENT: To the person who posted about where to add the cream (not the sour cream) you are right, it does not say where to add that indgredient.
To the people who have tried this recipe, which sounds wonderful I must say, could you help us out please?
Thank you so much.
annon November 29, 2007 COMMENT: It does not mention where to mix in the 1 cup of cream. Can someone let me know?
Gina November 29, 2007 COMMENT: to the guest who posted on 11-29-07 - I suggest you re-read the cooking directions it does clearly state when to add the sour cream!

I made this for a Mexican-themed dinner party and it was a total hit! It was so good we didn't even need the entree because everyone had 2 helpings! Will definately be put into regular rotation at our house this winter.
Guest Foodie June 20, 2006 REVIEW:
I added some fresh corn cut off the cob with the chicken to get in some more veggie and toned down the cream to make it a little lighter, and it turned out great. My husband said it was his favorite southwest-flavored soup ever, and my two year old son even ate it. This one's a keeper.

I've been searching for a really good cheesy chicken soup. Most were spicy hot but bland. This one has the right amount of hot and a lot of flavor.
Guest Foodie February 15, 2006 REVIEW:
This soup is very good. I will make it again.
cml February 5, 2006 REVIEW:
I have made this soup numerous times for various occasions and always get rave reviews. Last week I served it at a youth group supper. One gal told me she hates chicken tortilla soup but told my daughter afterwards that it was delicious! I won't make any other kind of chicken tortilla soup recipe again.
mammamoose January 9, 2006 REVIEW:
This is fantastic! Even my husband loved it and he hates soup! I will definately make this again.

Eggplants are a good source of potassium. If you find them to be too bitter, try buying smaller ones and sprinkle the flesh with salt and let it drain before cooking. This is a common reason why people shy away from eggplant but it is so easily remedied!
