Spicy Tortilla Soup

Recipe by  

"A fantastic way to warm up when it's chilly outside. This spicy one pot meal is packed with vegetables and tastes even better when it's served with traditional accompaniments - shredded cheese, sour cream and lime wedges."

Carefully add chicken pieces to soup; simmer an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
  3. Remove chicken from soup; cool and shred. Return chicken to soup; heat through. Ladle soup over crushed tortilla chips. Garnish with cilantro, cheese, sour cream and lime, if desired. Serve immediately.
