Delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup
I live in the Seattle area and today is a dreary day. Rainy, cold and just blah. A real downer. I have to say that days such as these can be depressing, but the one bright spot to it all is really good, warm comfort food and do I have a recipe for you.
My friend Robin is a great cook. She has been raving about this amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup that she has and at book club I finally had the opportunity to try it. Not only was it delicious, but when I got the recipe I was surprised to see just how easy it was to make. Now I am not sure if there is such a word as "quad-fecta", but if there is such a word (I am pretty sure there isn't one) then this meal would be it. Not only is it easy, light and delicious it is also a one-pot meal. I think I may be in love because at this point in my life, if it is going to make my life easier - I love it. Period.
