South Of The Border Chicken Tortilla Soup

South of The Boarder Chicken Tortilla Soup

Campbell’s soup says it right with their canned “Homestyle Mexican-Style Chicken Tortilla Soup.”

They describe the soup as packed with ingredients found in kitchens south of the border.

After they describe the ingredients in their soup, they say, “let your taste buds transport to the comforts of the southwest with each delicious spoonful.”

Though this soup has flavors used south of the boarder or Mexico, this recipe is Mexican inspired but was created in the Southwestern part of the United States or New Mexico.
