I love a good chicken tortilla soup. It reminds me of the days I worked as a technical recruiter in San Francisco. I would get San Francisco Soup Company’s chicken tortilla soup at least once a week.
It was so flavorful and always filled me up, despite being a soup. It kept me full all through the afternoon and on my hour commute home.
That’s when you know it’s a good meal-sized soup. It fills you up and keeps you full.
