I am so excited for this Gluten Free Tortilla Soup! I have not had tortilla soup since I became Gluten Free and it is one of my favorites. A tasty, spicy soup that's perfect for cool Spring evenings. You are really going to fall in love with this delicious soup.
I like to serve it with Homemade Guacamole. You can make your own tortilla crisps to put on top of the soup or purchase them at the store. Just be sure they are marked gluten free! My family always requests I double this recipe because it is so good!
