Healthy Chicken Poblano Tortilla Soup

You’ll do your body good with this Healthy Chicken Poblano Tortilla Soup. The homemade tortilla strips and a bit of kick from the pepper makes this such a flavorful soup.

I love a good chicken tortilla soup, so I’m always looking for new recipes to try. Tortilla soup can vary between broth-based or creamy. Both ways are equally delicious, it just depends on what your looking for or your diet preference.
