As a lot as I really like soup, in my view good soup is difficult to make. You want the suitable ratio of elements, the suitable seasonings, and the suitable accompaniments. I’ve had Tortilla Soup in Mexico and Mexican eating places. This soup comes near the genuine model that I’ve loved.
In truth, I believe the recipe I devised is so good I despatched it to my college-age grandson. He shares an condo with three associates and is the one one who likes to cook dinner. This recipe is a fast one and if you do not have time to cut onions, you could use frozen ones and even dehydrated.
Since I attempt to eat wholesome, I used 93% lean hamburger, diminished sodium vegetable juice, and diminished sodium taco seasoning. For the topping I used diminished fats bitter cream. If you desire a extra genuine Mexican dish, purchase some yellow corn tortillas, lower them into skinny strips, coat them with baking spray, and bake them in a 400-degree oven till crisp. Use these strips as a substitute of crumbled taco chips
I attempt to cook dinner forward on weekends. If you wish to cook dinner forward, make the soup and freeze it with out the garnishes. Serve this flavorful soup with a tossed inexperienced salad and the dessert of your alternative. Here is my unique recipe for Grandma’s Easy Tortilla Soup with Toppings.
