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!!

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.

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.

It does not mention where to mix in the 1 cup of cream. Can someone let me know?
