What’s better for dealing with tummy issues than an IBS chicken recipe? Chicken tortilla soup has a special place in my heart. In third grade, our class made a collection of favorite recipes and mine was this soup. I’m not sure where the original recipe came from but it was something my Dad and I would make together on Sunday evenings. The best part of the meal was adding the cheese on top and watching it get stuck all over my spoon. Isn’t it funny the moments that come from a simple soup? My Dad still makes this specific recipe to this day but even he loves this my adaptation without the garlic and onion. This is a similar version of that recipe with my own interpretation making sure to exclude garlic and onion but not loosing any flavor. Plus the soup gets better with the next few days so make a big batch to last all week.
