Cafe Rio Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is my chicken noodle soup, it is the soup I eat when I am not feeling well or need a emotional pick me up! So since I am feeling crappy today I decided to make it & share it with you...

It is similar to Patti's that she already posted, but didn't include my secret Ingredients :)

3 C chicken Broth
2 cans tomatoes (28 oz)
1 can green chili's (4 oz)
1/2 C enchilada sauce
3 cloves garlic
1/2 an onion chopped
dash of cumin
salt and pepper to taste
cooked & shredded chicken breasts
limes cut in sections

Simmer all above ingredients, except limes. squeeze a least one lime in each bowl ( this time I made it I didn't have limes so I used lime juice and simmered it in with other ingredients). The lime is the flavor that makes the soup! at least for me it is.

You can also add any of the following you like:
Grated cheese
tortilla chips (we like the lime tortilla chips)
also freshly cooked tortilla shells are great!
sliced avocados
sour cream

I am sure there are many other things you could add but these are our favorites.
