Tortilla Soup

One of my favorite blogs to read is MyBig Fat Cuban Family.  Martha is witty, sweet, creative and very familia oriented.  She also cooks and has a cook book out with the same name as the blog. 

I decided to try her receta for tortilla soup and I love it!  I finally figured out why I love it so much…..the soup is so hardy with tons of tortillas, the textures remind me of Mexican chilaquiles and I really, really, really, really LOVE authentic chilaquiles. 

HERE is Martha’s receta.  I make a little variation of her receta.  I use fire roasted tomates and puree them with a half onion in the blender leaving it a little chunky.  I make my own chicken broth and slow cook the soup for a while to marry the flavors.  Then really, the soup can be topped it with anything….black beans, avocado, corn, but two constants are always shredded cheese and tortillas!
