Spicy corn chickpea tortilla soup

 It’s soup season and I am here for it!

This cozy bowl of spicy corn chickpea tortilla soup is just what I needed this afternoon. So comforting, so tasty. I love a classic tortilla soup, but adding chickpeas in there really adds some great body. If you like a decent amount of spice, then make the recipe as is.. if you want something more mild then hold the chipotle.
