Chicken Tortilla Soup for a Cold Winter’s Day

There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter’s day and we love my chicken tortilla soup. It’s super easy to make and it doesn’t take long. This would be the perfect soup to make on a boat, as the cooking time is short and as a result it doesn’t create a lot of condensation in your cabin.

The cabin on our boat is small and so any type of heat we generate in the winter, quickly creates condensation on our hatches. If we crack them open, the rain gets in, so it’s a lose lose situation.¬† That’s why I like to make recipes that don’t require a lot of cooking time. This chicken tortilla soup is hearty¬† and a crowd favorite! Enjoy.
