Chicken tortilla soup appears quite often on the menu rotation at my house because of the amazing tastes melded together in a bowl and because how cheap it is to make. Did I mention, it's one of my favorites?

Amazing tastes plus easy on the budget. You are my kind of meal!

This is a great recipe to use both homemade broth and leftover shredded chicken, plus the soup packs in a lot of veggies. You can freeze tortilla soup, but it doesn't hold up well in the freezer. I like to use my dutch oven for cooking because of how it has such even heat and the easy clean-up with just one pot!

Sandy, yes it is an easy way to 'remake' your chicken so you have something different to serve and you don't have to eat the same leftovers again and again.
