Every Tuesday night is taco night at my house. Getting tired of tacos so I came up with this soup! Putting together my favorite tortilla soup ( Max and Erma's) and my own soup I usually do. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love the flavor of this soup! It's so creamy, so savory, so satisfying. Should you prefer a meatless version this would still have lots of flavor without the chicken.

    Notes!!! Add water or more broth if too thick for you, I added cayenne pepper to my bowl for more kick but not to the whole pot... kids, Watch how much salt you add, can soups can have a lot of salt, Cam bell's Heart Healthy is a good choice.
