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!¡Deli!
