I am loving me some tortilla soup this fall. You simply can not go wrong with a big bowl of tortilla soup. I love this one because it is so different from the tradition recipe. I got this recipe from my dear friend alison who has shared a great many recipes with me that have become family favorites throughout the years. This is a great recipe for a busy evening when you need to whip a speedy dinner together. It is not necessary to cook it for 30-an hour but I personally like too. You can prepare it and eat it after 15 minutes if you are in a really big hurry! enjoy.
