Tortilla Soup

It has been an year since the blog came about. Loved every moment of it.......making new friends, learning and sharing. A big thanks to all my friends ..!! :)

The temperatures are plugging, snow is on its way......18-24 inches expected with wind gusts 30-45 mph....... looks like Midwest is going to be in a hibernate mode for the next couple of days with the blizzard on its way. I do hope it is not as bad as they predict. Looking out from my window I see the calm before the storm with an occasional gust of wind. It almost feel like am writing a scene for a fiction,  this is real :( :(  !!  Will keep you posted with some clicks. 

I cannot think of posting anything else but some nice warm soup on a cold day like this ....with no promise of sunshine for the next two days...some soup to warm us up !!




Carrots : 1/4 chopped
Celery : 1/4 cup chopped
Tomato: 1/4 cup chopped
Red and yellow bell pepper : 1/4 cup chopped
Yellow Squash : 1/4 cup chopped
Cabbage: 1/4 cup chopped
Onion: 1 medium chopped
Butter: 1 tbsp
Garlic Clove : 2

In a dutch oven melt butter saute the onions and add the vegetables...add 2-3 cups of water, salt and bring to a boil. Add 2 tbsp of southwest spice blend  . Pour all the ingredients into a blender along with a handful of tortilla chips and blend, if you like your soup chunky ....don't over blend. Take care while blending hot liquids in the blender.  Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and some tortilla chips.

  5. Nice tortilla soup. I am finding so many variations, just going to have to try them all. I want to do a big soup for the game this weekend, something different than chili for a change.
    Have been doing practice runs all week, your next. Thanks for the recipe.
