How to make tortilla soup

Place broth, water, chopped onion, garlic and celery with tops on in your favorite large soup pot. Cook chicken at a low boil with bone until meat is ready to fall off

When chicken is cooked remove from pot, when cool, take away skin and bones, place chicken back in the pot. Add remaining ingredients and seasonings and cook until veggies are soft. I suppose you could add some sort of chile to the recipe such as a jalepeno if you want some extra kick, I don’t do this but would be fun to try for those that like more spice

When veggies are cooked, place in your favorite soup bowl and add toppers

Toppers for easy tortilla soup 

Cilantro, coarsely chopped

Shredded cheese, I use cheddar because that is what I usually have but a Queso Fresco would work nicely too

Avocado chopped

Green onion chopped

Lime, add a squirt to your soup, adds a nice finish

Tortilla chips for crunch, I like to break them up
