Soup's On!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

The weather has been so cold and windy lately, that I woke up this morning and decided to make a big pot of soup. I wanted to try a different recipe than my usual, so I googled 'Chicken Tortilla Soup' and came up with this one. It was at a blog for "The Pioneer Woman". If you click on the title 'Soup's On' at the top of this post, it is linked to the site and you will pop over there.

The soup is mostly all by scratch, using fresh ingredients (except for a few cans of things) and turned out really wonderful. One of her secrets is to add 3 T. of cornmeal, mixed with a little warm water to the mostly cooked soup, and let that cook an additional 30 minutes. At the end I added strips of corn tortillas to soften, and they gave it such a good taste! Yummy dinner.

This sounds delicious. It has been cold here as well .... we have even had little snow flurries today .... I thought it was supposed to be spring (ha ha ha).
Thanks for the link to the recipe, I will have to give it a try. Hope all is well.
