Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe @pinch

This chicken tortilla soup truly is easy! All the ingredients are added to the pot, and then everything simmers. Chili haveinfused oil adds nice heat and flavor to the soup. We cooked chicken breasts in a pressure cooker, shredded it, and added the chicken to the pot. The chicken soaks up the yummy flavor from all the spices. In a pinch, a rotisserie chicken will work just as well. I needed a quick meal and these ingredients were on hand. This is fairly mild have use jalape�nstead of poblano to spice it up if you like.
