Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup


I've actually ran across this recipe or versions of this recipe on many websites that promote healthy eating.  I love the flavors in this soup and as you eat it every bite highlights a new flavor.  It has recently been added to our rotation of meals in our family because it is liked so much.
