A big thank you to my wife Gabriela for preparing for us The BEST Chicken Tortilla Soup.  This was a recipe she spotted on Facebook that her cousin shared.  Isn’t that the way social media is supposed to work?  I can confirm with only a few modifications to the recipe to fit our personal, Sandoval taste buds, and I will confirm this was The BEST “Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup” I had ever eaten.  FYI, it was both easy and tasty.  Also we need to give credit to the website lilluna.com  for being the original recipe source.
