chicken tortilla soup

I had tortilla soup at On The Border last week and then i realized i don’t really have a tortilla soup recipe. So i made this one tonight. It tastes pretty good but not really like OTB. I think the salsa made a difference…i skipped the avocado but it would definitely be delicious! Of course i also skipped the tortilla chips for the top so i wonder if it is still Tortilla Soup??
