Chicken Tortilla Soup

A few additions to canned cream of chicken soup provide the comforting flavor found in Carolyn Griffin's mock chicken dumpling soup. "The chunks of chicken are nice and tender," notes the Macon, Georgia cook. "And you can't tell that the dumplings are actually tortilla strips."

    This is not very tasty. It's just a can of condensed soup with a few added ingredients.

    I didn't have cream of chicken soup so used cream of mushroom and turned out great

    Didn't care much for it. Thought it was rather boring and tasteless as it is. Added pepper and garlic which helped. Won't make again.

    Made recipe as written, but it seemed bland. I added a little poultry seasoning, pepper, garlic powder. This seemed to help. Will make again with added seasonings. Good recipe base and very quick to make.

    This was a great one! I just add some veggies and added half water and half chicken broth. It was a great!

    Just finished making it and am surprised how good it truly is. So simple and only three ingredients. I decided to make this recipe to use up a few things left in the fridge, and am already thinking about the next time I make it and other worthy ingredients I might add that need to be used. I will definitely make this again.
