Pin It With all of the Thanksgiving gatherings this past week I am sick of eating turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. My tastebuds need a wake up with some new flavors. That's why I decided to make some chicken tortilla soup. This makes a large pot full of soup so invite a crowd over or be prepared for delicious leftovers for days to come.
