Mexican Tomato Soup 

I love the flavors of Mexican cooking.  I fell in love with so many flavors of this country when I lived in Los Angeles and learned to cook.  I especially loved going into the supermarkets there and trying out all the chilies, tomatillos, and other ethnic spices for cooking.  Sometimes, my taste buds yearn for those flavors.  Unfortunately, living on Cape Cod, those truly authentic flavors and ingredients are just unavailable.

I love tortilla soup.  Authentic Mexican tortilla soup is simply a flavorful tomato soup poured over wonderful crispy tortilla strips, avocado and cheese.  The soup is very easy to prepare and a real crowd pleaser.  The best part is that I created this soup with ingredients that are readily available in all areas of the country, but still bring the authentic flavors of Mexico home.

Serves 4


1 (14oz) can of diced tomatoes

Melissa, great recipe for the approaching fall days. Then again, for me, soup is always a good option for preparing and eating. I just really like soup in any manner or fashion. I'll have to put this one on the list to try this fall. Have a great soup day.
