Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup = SUCCESS!

Chicken Tortilla soup has always been a favorite of mine. Every time my mom would make it, I would devour bowl after bowl. Never in a million years did I think that I could make it (mostly because I could barely make anything in a kitchen). But this easy recipe and my pre-cut veggies made it super simple! It was the perfect meal to cook for Steven because it was fast (so I could spend more time with him), but also delicious (I think he was impressed with my cooking skills!).
