Quick and Easy Chicken and Dumplings Soup Recipe

chicken and dumplings

This isn’t your traditional Southern Chicken and Dumplings, but it’s yummy and easy, perfect for a cold day.  The whole family loves this recipe, which my mother-in-law shared with me!  The tortillas make the “dumplings,” and you can hardly tell they’re tortillas after they cook.  I have added carrots and cream of celery soup, but they’re not necessary for a delicious, hearty bowl of soup!
