Recently I’ve been on a serious soup kick. It was one of my 2017 resolutions that I failed, but I guess it’s better late than never, right? This is actually the first soup I’ve ever made, believe it or not, and I’m proud to say it turned out great! Super simple, filling, and delicious. My biggest concern with soup (aside from not realizing how easy it is to make) is that I didn’t feel it would make for a sufficient meal. On the contrary, this soup is very hearty and filling. My backup plan was to add some rice into the soup but it turned out perfect without it.

I know some people probably prefer their tortilla soup to be more broth-y, but I personally prefer less broth and more stuff. You can definitely increase the broth by adding water and seasoning, though. Below I’ve outlined the recipe. I’d say my portion would serve 4 very hungry people. Paul & I usually eat 2 large bowls each and then save the rest for leftovers. And sidenote, I’m not a leftover person, but with soup I am! It gets better with time so I’m all about eating it on the Day 2 & 3.

As far as the tortilla strips go, I LOVE how the homemade ones taste. You can obviously buy pre-made ones, but these are super easy to make and there is a sense of satisfaction that comes with making your own. I recommend trying them out. You won’t regret it.
