Chicken Tortilla Soup


I don’t think i ever had chicken tortilla soup until few weeks ago . I thought they’re good , similar to Chili , but i think i prefer tortilla soup better . The recipe here is so easy , although it took about 1 hour to simmer , so that the taste blends better , so worth it . Perfect day for a chicken tortilla soup , since it’s a little bit cold over here . Anyway here is the recipe :

4 chicken thighs , boneless , cut into bite size

vegetable oil

salt and pepper, smoked paprika

Cut the chicken thighs into bite size , salt pepper them and then sprinkle with some smoked paprika to give a smoky flavour . Brown the chicken about 6-8 minutes high heat . Take them out from the pot and set aside . Throw away the fat .
