  1. This sounds amazing. I make a new batch of soup every Sunday, this one is in the near future. Think a slow cooker would work for it?

  3. This is such a creative dish. All the ingredients seems to be from everywhere but combined to create mouth watering flavor. How did you thought of it? Love it. Brilliant!

  4. Whoa! What an awesome recipe! Avocado has to be my all-time greatest, favorite fruit. I enjoy in in guacamole, sushi and even on its own (a squeeze of lemon, a dash of salt to boot and we’re good to go). But this? I’ve never thought to incorporate avocado in a soup with tortillas. Genius. Thanks for this. I’m going to try it out and see how it goes. Looks scrumptious, nonetheless! πŸ™‚

  5. One of the main things I MISS since I started trying to eat gluten free is corn chips and tortillas! I live in TX and was practically raised on Tex-Mex. I may just have to make this soup on a cheat day. It looks amazing!

  6. I absolutely love Chicken Tortilla soup. Fun fact: my mom always pronounced it tort-ill-ya, and I didn’t find out it was tort-ee-ya until I was 21.

    Anywhoo, great recipe! I’ll have to try it.

  7. Mmmm. My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures. I’ve made this kind of soup before but your recipe looks more delicious. I can’t wait to try it!!
