I made this last night, and i must say I was VERY Pleasantly suprised. My husband is Mexican and is very picky about his "mexican" food. I have made a tortilla soup that took much longer and had many complicated ingredients, but this simple recipe was WAY better. It was DELICIOUS!!!!! I could not stop saying WOW this is great. I did leave out the tortillas in the soup and just topped w/ crushed tortilla chips and it was still great! I used leftover chicken and just sauteed w/ some poultry seasoning, cumin, garlic/onion, then added the other ingredients (i also added half a can of diced tomatoes to make less spicy for my young kids...my kids loved it age 3, 7, and 9) Thanks Kraft for a great EASY recipe....A KEEPER!
