Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup
Have you ever made a recipe that your whole family loves and cannot stop talking about for years to come? For me, this is my chipotle avocado chicken tortilla soup. I first found a recipe for this years ago in a small cookbook and made it for my family. They raved and raved about it.

I think it is pretty darn good but was surprised when they continued to talk about it for years to come. For Father's Day this year, my dad requested certain dishes from each of my family members: gazpacho from my mom, Greek pasta salad from my sister and guacamole from my brother. From me, he requested this soup. It turned out well and I decided to finally share the recipe with all of you.

Since I have made this recipe more than 5 times, I can say that it is easy, delicious, healthy and awesome.
