Mealthy tip:

This soup is perfect vehicle for toppings; sour cream, a squeeze of lime, chopped tomatoes, and green onions are all great additions. Feel free to add any and all of your favorites! Diced green chilies come in both mild and hot varieties. That allows you to decide how much heat you want to put in this recipe.

Loved this for being such a super-easy and tasty recipe! Treated it like pho and let the kids assemble their own bowls, which was a winner. If I make the exact same thing and put it in front of them, it'd be "Ugh, DAAAAADDD!!!!" They didn't take any avocado, so more for me! Also added a bit of hot sauce to mine.

Definitely my favorite chicken tortilla soup. I add extra cheese, avocado, and tortilla chips on mine. The stock is so flavorful, with all the seasonings and chilies. Perfect for cold weather days!

I made this chicken tortilla soup and it was so warming and delicious. It reminded me a lot of restaurant-style tortilla soup. The chili powder, cumin, and oregano gave this dish delicious, authentic flavors. Seriously, making shredded chicken in the pressure cooker is so simple, and this soup is just one of the amazing creations that can be prepared in around 30 minutes!
