Mexican Tortilla Soup


product images
Originally developed with Mexican Tortilla Flavor Infused Broth, we’ve updated this recipe to use Swanson® Chicken Broth, cumin and lime juice to give it the same fabulous flavor.  This classic Mexican dish combines chicken, black beans and veggies in a flavorful broth.  Topping it off with crushed tortilla chips gives it the perfect crunch.
