Quick Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup

With the fast approaching “Cinco de Mayo” comes an influx of Mexican recipes.  Here in the United States they are mostly Tex/Mex recipes.  While I’m not Mexican and do not celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I am game for Mexican food at all times, authentic or Tex/Mex!  Following is a soup that I made in my Mc’Daddy Pressure Cooker (remember I told you about this here) and I made this soup in record time!  Once again I’m going to tell you “YOU NEED TO OWN ONE OF THESE!!!”

I had this on my kitchen table in less than 20 minutes.  Hello???? Are you listening?  Less than 20 minutes.

The best Mexican Tortilla Soup you will ever have with ingredients you may already have in your kitchen!  If you don’t have a pressure cooker, go get one!  No just kidding, if you don’t have one just comment on the bottom so that I can send you the regular cooking method direction if you need it.  In the meantime…..
