Chicken Tortilla Soup | Indianapolis Food Blogger 3

One thing I’ve come to love is the ease of making a lot of meals with one main ingredient. I tend to look up a batch of chicken on Sunday to use in several meals throughout the week. As in the case with my Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup. I baked up a couple of chicken breasts and thighs with a tri-pepper and onion blend and happiness was had. Chicken Tortilla Soup | Food LoveTog

Leftover chicken and its stock makes for an awesome tortilla soup. Combined with a few pantry items you can have this dish on the able in 35 minutes or less. Leftover chicken and veggies are your friend! Check out the recipe below
