Savory Tortilla Soup

Savory Tortilla Soup Savory Tortilla Soup Savory Tortilla Soup

This soup came out so tasty and flavorful. The pan-fried tortilla strips added some nice crunch, and I also served the soup with some sour cream, Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro and scallions. It was an easy, light yet tasty soup.
