Tortilla Soup Challenge RoundUp #1
First up is one from Amy at Kitchen Centsability. Amy still talks about a Tortilla Soup she had back in '93 on a trip to Dallas to see Notre Dame play in the Sugar Bowl. She made a soup based on a Martha Stewart recipe that she said was "An ideal combination of smokey chili, rich chicken broth and just the right about of kick." Sounds just right to me!
Next up is Danielle from Cooking for My Peace of Mind. Dani cooked up a Guy Fieri recipe that was already sitting on my "to-try" list of Tortilla Soups. This recipe included the secret ingredient...Tequila! So, like the true fellow lush that she is, Dani turned the Tortilla Soup post into a drinking game. That's my girl....salud! Oh, and did I mention this was her first time trying Tortilla Soup? Hopefully it won't be her last...most of the year still remains! I'm trying this one soon.
Honestly, the more Tortilla Soups and recipes I try and see...the harder it is to decide. Can there be one clear-cut favorite in the bunch? I'm not sure yet, but I'm gonna keep working my through the mix to see if I can figure it out. Heck, I still have 10 months to figure it out! And that is plenty of time for you to join me on my quest...there...you've been challenged! Whatcha gonna do about it!? Click here to play along! Thanks so much to everybody who's joined me so far...thanks for making me drool...and thanks for mixing things up and making it harder for me to decide. HA!
