Oh wow, this was good! As we all do, I made a few modifications. First, since it calls for shredded chicken, I put some chicken tenders in a dutch oven and added water about 2 inches over the chicken. I threw in a bay leaf, salt, pepper and a dried red chili. Then simmered until done. Not only did my chicken get cooked and flavored, but I had a nice broth to use in the soup. So I strained out the 'stuff' and added a little water to make the ammt needed. next time I will try to add more water to cook so I dont have to add water. but, there was no loss of chicken flavor. I added a can of crushed tomitillos which really made the flavor pop. I also added sliced baby carrots (they didnt cook completely through but the slight crunch made a nice texture). Yum. For the tortillas, I cut them in very thin strips, tossed them with pam, salt and chili/lime powder and baked them in a 350 oven for about 10 minutes or so until crisp. I set it up like a soup bar. I had the crock of soup, my tortilla strips, cheese, sour cream, sliced avacado and cilanto and let everyone build their own. My whole family loved it. Will definitely put this in my keeper file!
