When I was little, there was a Mexican restaurant that my family ate at frequently. They had the best chicken soup there. I could eat it by the bucketful…..the other day I was feeling a little nostalgic and decided to recreate  the awesomeness that is this soup. And let me tell you, I didn’t disappoint myself!! Lol.
The great thing about soup is you can usually make it for super cheap and you can freeze it. Although, I never seem to make enough for my 5 kids and husband. Oinkers I tell ya!!
Everything in this soup is whole30 compliant, but feel free to add rice, bean, or even tortilla strips.
