Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Did everyone have a wonderful Christmas this year? Are you ready for New Years and 2012? We all had an excellent Christmas, and got lots of nice gifts. One of my favorites was a new 9 cup Cuisinart food processor, exactly like the one I got my Mom last year! I see lots of pesto in our future! I ate so much food this past weekend I may never have to eat again! There was clams, coconut shrimp, prime rib, lasagna, and homemade creme puffs (recipe coming soon). Everything was delicious. I definitely had to hit the gym today!

Cliff and I like to go to this Mexican restaurant near our house called Mago. They have the best homemade tortilla chips. Every entree comes with chicken tortilla soup. It is one of the best soups that I have ever had. Cliff and Kelly like cheesy tortilla soup but this is my favorite version. The last time we ate there I decided that I needed to make it at home. It was super easy. I made mine a little too spicy though!! Don’t worry though I have adjusted the spices for you! Even though our soup was crazy spicy we still really enjoyed it and I will be making it again soon.

Brown the chicken. Mine did not get as brown as I would like. I blame my cheap-o pot. Anyone want to buy me a nice Le Creuset dutch oven? I'd really appreciate it!

    Yum! You know, I’ve always wanted to try my hand at tortilla soup. This sounds fabulous. I’ve got a bunch of bone in breasts in the freezer too. Perfect!
