    I used the instant pot for the chicken to speed things up, but it was very good!

    I cut up and pan fried my chicken instead. It was faster. So good!

    Man that was good! Pretty much went by the recipe. Used chipotle chili powder. Used buttermilk instead of milk. Used corn tortillas ground in a food processor.

    Delicious. I used canned chicken for faster prep. I froze half of the batch and it turned out tasty after reheating a few weeks later.
    This soup was fantastic! I used ground corn tortilla chips in place of the masa harina and it worked out perfectly! I definitely recommend this recipe!
