hearty chicken tortilla soup.
Let me introduce you to my new favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe.
Yeah, I know. There are about a million recipes out there.
This here’s a hearty one, and here’s why: corn tortillas sauteed with cilantro, garlic and onion. The tortillas get all warm and cozy and hot and mushy.
This soup serves 6 so you may end up with leftovers, or then again maybe not. If you ARE disciplined enough to refrain from the second serving, this soup’s great the next day.
