My Mama gave me a yummy recipe for Tex-Mex Tortilla Soup and I tried it out last night! OMGoodness...it is YUMMY! This is the bowl I ate last night...I loaded it with avocado, chips and cheese.....so much you can't even see the soup! LOL!
Here it is simmering away...oh the smells that were wafting through the house! WOW! I love when that happens!
Here's a spoon full just to show you all the yumminess in there. It's really a pretty dish with all its color! Oh and did I mention the aroma? LOL!
Here's what I like to add to mine to garnish....yep....EVERYTHING! Is it just me or do you just LOVE the way cilantro smells! I think I would like a candle that smells like it! LOL! Okay here's the recipe if you'd like to have it and maybe give it a try!
