Simple Supper Monday - Volume 34: Chicken Tortilla Soup

This recipe comes from my friend, Kirsten. She found this soup recipe online a year or so ago, and it has become a staple in her house. Seeing as I am looking for more soup recipes to fill my kitchen with, I greatly appreciate (and can't wait to try) this recipe!

Wow. Now that it is typed out, I am hungry for this recipe! I guess It'll have to go on the menu this week :)
