Better than your Mama's Tortilla Soup

Since moving to Texas my families tastes have changed quite a bit. Chicken Noodle soup used to be our go to food when anyone was feeling under the weather. I used to make the stock from scratch in the pressure cooker and we always served it with buttery mashed potatoes. This made for an extremely rich and filling soup and did you know that fatty foods raise your body temperature? In southern Texas a food that makes you sweat is not ideal even when you don’t feel well. Instead we switched to Tortilla Soup which I feel is a much healthier option with lots of vegetables and dose of chiles to help you sweat off that fever. I have tried many different tortilla soups and I think this simple recipe beats them all in flavor.
