Zesty Tortilla Soup

Tammy Raynes


Because everyone in my family loves mexican food, we find this soup especially appealing. Has just the right amount of zing to it.

However, this is not my original recipe. Found this in a magazine and decided to try it for myself. Thought I would share with you all.
