This is another recipe you might've thought was a restaurant-only specialty, but Mexican tortilla soup is a cinch to whip up at home. Chicken, veggies and broth make up the base, and garlic, oregano, cumin, cilantro and jalapeños give the soup a nice kick. And for this dish's signature crunchy topping, you can use bagged chips, or cut up some fresh tortillas and toast them in the oven. Olé!
