Recipe: Chicken Tortilla Soup

I thought there would be leftovers to take a picture with but it was eaten so quickly! This makes enough for 4 normal people or 3 very hungry people. It looks quite like you’d expect it to and it’s hot but not so hot you can’t feed it to just about anyone (and you should!)
