Tortilla Soup


If you ever want tortilla soup quickly,

use this as the base.


I have mentioned this before. but it bears


My friend Mary Jo told me about this. 

It is easy and delicious.


Once the soup base is heated,

add your favorite ingredients.

I added a can of ranch style beans,

shredded chicken breast,

and corn on the cob- only because I didn’t have frozen whole kernel corn.


Because I used rotisserie chicken,

it was ready in minutes.

I then served it in my talavera bowls

from Dolores Hidalgo,

and I used the vintage silver soup spoons I have.

I only have two, but there is something

so satisfying in using something beautiful when you just have two.
Once served in the bowl, I topped it with grated cheese,

avocado slices, and cilantro.


I just had one more thing to do:

iced tea in my lime green goblet from

San Miguel de Allende.
