I’m on a massive soup kick! It feels so nourishing to seat – but while I love a good slow cooked meal – sometimes you really do need it quick!
Here’s the secret to making this soup quick and easy – firstly we’re using canned goods, simple enough – but also what you do is to make a homemade stock the night before and set it to cook while you sleep. It’s going to pack in so much flavour, that when it comes to making your soup – it takes little effort to make it amazing!
You can do a chicken stock or do a veggie stock, with 6 cups of water, 2 large carrots, 1 onion, some garlic and herbs.
The soup itself starts with 3 flavours: onion, garlic and cilantro stems. Once they saute soft, you just add in your cans of beans, tomato and pour in that lovely homemade stock! And you are good to go!
Normally in a tortilla soup, you’d add on sliced tortilla wraps, baked crisp in the oven. But I discovered a quicker way – tortilla chips. Super crunchy and salty, I love it. Look for a better brand, made well – and you’re all good! I like the way better snacks. Quick & Dirty Mexican Tortilla Soup Recipe
