Max & Erma's Chicken Tortilla Soup - Sue's Original Clone
150 mins (prep 30, cooking 120)
20 ingredients
12-16 servings
In 2001 I attempted to duplicate Max & Erma's (well-known mid-west restaurant chain) chicken tortilla soup. It elicits favorable compliments every time that I serve it. Rather than prepare a time-consuming cream/milk base, I chose to use condensed soups. With the addition of the other ingredients, the end result is a tasty, spicy, flavorful southwestern soup.
