Chicken Tortilla Soup

Tonight's dinner was Chicken Tortilla soup, I tried this around noon and it was WAY too spicy for us (we are babies) so I added a can of tomato sauce. That did tame it down, it was still not exactly wonderful! I would not make this recipe again. It was bad it just wasn't something Adam and I enjoy.

I went back and forth tonight weather I should post this or not, but everyone makes cooking mistakes and some people might really like this recipe. So I opted to post it anyway.

It was probably the whole can of green chilies. We use green chilies in chili a lot, but I don't like it as spicy as my husband. We'll usually add half a can while it is cooking then he adds more to his bowl when it is dished up. The recipe sounds really good though!
