Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Easy, dump and enjoy soup ~ #recipe #soup

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club Reveal day! For those of you that aren’t familar with the SRC it’s a group of bloggers and we are all assigned a different blog, we pick a recipe, make it and write a post about it. On an assigned day during the month we do a “reveal” day and show off our recipes. It’s bunches of fun and we get to check out new blogs.

This month I was assigned the blog Our Eating Habits. Of course I went right to work “pinning” my favorite recipes on my Pinterest board. And yes it was my “secret” pin board. Gotta love that new invention right?

When I saw that there was a Chicken Tortilla Soup I knew that was the recipe I just had to try. I’ve been looking for a recipe like this for a long time but it always seemed like a lot of work or had a few things in it I wasn’t so excited about. This one looked perfect! And I was right. It’s fabulous and so easy to make any night. If you are like me and looking for a perfect Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe please go and make this one!

    I guess you and I had the mexi-chicken dishes vibe going on this month. And duh, why didn’t I think of using my secret board to pin recipes. I always ‘bookmark’ them the old fashioned way so they can’t see what I’m up to. Thanks for the tip and delicious looking recipe!

  • Our Eating Habits

    Yay! So glad you liked it :)

  • Melissa

    What a delicious looking soup! It looks like the perfect dinner for a snowy night like tonight!

  • Debra

  • Kirstin

    YUM! this sounds so good. I’m a fellow SRC member, group D

  • Gloria - The Ginger Snap Girl

    Looks delicious! I’ve been pinning soups like crazy. What type of salsa did you use in the recipe? Fresh? Jarred?

    • Julie

      Jarred! But if you have fresh or homemade that would work to I think!

  • Veronica

    I did that too! I have a secret board just to save my SRC recipes to. LOL! I was so happy when they came out with those b/c I never pinned the recipes before b/c I was afraid the person I was assigned to would see them and figure out who had them. Gotta love tortilla soup–and it’s so perfect for this cold weather!

  • A Couple in the Kitchen

    Great soup – perfect for this time of year!
