Protein-Packed Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken tortilla soup is one of my favorite fall soups. It’s usually one I repeat a few times, and an easy go-to when I catch a cold.

I’ve been holding out on this recipe simply because I hadn’t had time to photograph it. I ended up making it right before I became super busy with work, and then didn’t make the time to do so.

I finally scheduled some recipe/content time into my schedule on Tuesday afternoon and was able to finish and prep a few things for the blog.

This recipe is extra awesome because it makes so many servings! This was enough to feed me and my boyfriend twice, and then freeze 2 big soup containers of it for later.

I don’t know about you, but November to December gets crazy busy for me, so this will be an awesome thing to grab and heat up when I don’t have time to cook.

It’s easy, simple, and quick. What more can you ask for?
