Tortilla Soup

With my mother's blessing, I am posting her Tortilla soup recipe. I love it. What is posted below is the basic recipe, however feel free to add to it. I often add an avocado garnish, but I did not have any, so no avocado this time. My grandmother likes to add all sorts of vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, etc. It is so simple and quick (I am always look for simple, tasty, quick recipes).

  • 2 Cans of White Chicken
  • 2- 16 ounce cans of Chicken Broth
  • 1- 32 ounce can of Tomato sauce
  • One bunch of Cilantro
  • A few bunches of Green Onions
  • 1 Pkg of Taco Seasoning
  • 1 16 ounce can of Corn
  • Garlic Cloves-to taste
  • 2-16 ounce cans of Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese

Heat cilantro and onions together. Add rest of ingredients. Simmer. Spoon into bowls and top with Tortilla Chips and grated Cheese.

Doesn't it look delicious. Yummy!

Most children like it...however Ethan just ate the soaked chips and the cheese from the top. I tried.

I even had some leftovers so I decided to freeze some, for a later date and then left enough for my lunch the next day (please ignore the fact that my stove is filthy in this photo, I am a messy cook!). Perfect! Bon Appetite!
