These are the sides that compliment the chicken tortilla soup:
- Chopped green onions (with the best food chopper)
- Fresh cilantro
- 2 limes cut in wedges (to squeeze in soup)
- Avocado sliced with an avocado slicer
- Sour cream
- Chortle peppers (very important, I recommend Embassa)
- Restaurant style chips (lime flavor is the best)
- Flour tortillas
Put desired amount of rice in a large soup bowl, add soup mixture, keep all the sides separate and add to liking. I have made this recipe for up to 15 people at one time and it has been a smash every time. Enjoy this chicken tortilla soup recipe!
For leftovers keep everything separate-the rice will get soggy if you store it with the soup.
