Tex-Mex BBQ Chicken Soup

Tex Mex BBQ Chicken Soup

You know what I love just as much as I love pumpkin cookies this time of year?  Soup!  I want soup every chilly fall day we have. And fall here in Utah seems to be getting shorter…and colder.  Seriously, I see snow-capped mountains out my window and the weekend is looking gloomy.  

Soup is a must!

This Tex Mex BBQ Chicken Soup is a fun spin on your typical chicken taco or chicken tortilla soup.  It has all the mexican flavors with a hint of smoky barbecue sauce.  Crush some tortilla chips over the top or use your chips as a spoon (that’s what I like to do!)

    I love the idea of adding barbecue sauce to this soup. I have a very similar chicken tortilla soup recipe that I make all the time, so I’ll definitely be trying this next time.
