One of the Best Paleo Winter Soups

With most of the country in the throws of winter, we thought we would make hearty soup to warm you up. We asked the chef to come up with a recipe for Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup, and boy did she do a good job! Crisp fresh vegetables, stewed tomatoes, our fabulous Chicken Bone Broth and lots of Cilantro are the stars here. If you want to be really authentic you could cut our POTG Tortillas into strips and fry them up to top off the soup.
This is a quick and easy soup to put together whether you are cooking for one or for the whole family.
