Today, Brandi with The Creative Princess is sharing with us her recipe for Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup! It sounds perfect to me during this cold winter!

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
I am so excited to be sharing this amazing recipe with you today!
A few months ago I spoke about quick fix meals at our monthly women’s meeting at my church. A friend of mine made this Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup to share at our potluck that night. I immediately fell in love.
I have made all kinds of different Tortilla Soup recipes over the years, this is my favorite though. I had never made a creamy version; it will be hard for me to go back to “regular” after having this.
Quick Tips for making Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
One of the reasons I like this recipe is because it is so versatile. You can either bake the chicken, or boil it. I prefer boiling it in chicken broth mixed with taco seasoning.
It takes no time at all doing it that way. You can even toss the chicken breasts, chicken broth and taco seasoning in the slow cooker.
I mean really, however you want to cook the chicken breasts, this recipe allows you that freedom. You can also add to the base soup. Want to add corn or black beans? You can! Whatever you have time for and/or have on hand, you can add to this soup.
