I love serving Ina’s Mexican Chicken Soup with tortilla strips, slices of avocado, and sometimes a dollop of sour cream. It’s perfect for dinner, to take to work as lunch, or even freeze and save for a rainy day. The rotisserie chicken makes the prep time super quick and the fresh vegetables give the soup a great texture and flavor. What are your favorite add-ons to Mexican Chicken Soup?
