I am a huge fan of Tortilla Soup. Tortilla soup topped with corn tortilla strips and a little bit of sour cream is soul satisfying. This is a tomato based soup of Mexican origin which usually has chicken stock cooked with tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro and lime juice. But I have made a vegetarian version and tweaked it a bit to satisfy the vegetarian taste buds.
Okay! Now I will tell y’all what inspired me to prepare this soup. I love the Mexican Gumbo from Qdoba, which is a fast food restaurant in the United States serving Mexican style cuisine. The foundation of this dish is Tortilla Soup, Cilantro Rice and Beans. My friend usually gets the Tortilla Soup alone and that’s how I got to taste this soup once and I loved it. I used to make it now and then but never got a chance to take a picture for posting the recipe. Either it gets over fast or bad lighting or blame it on me…since I am lazy sometimes…;)
Here is the recipe for this tasty soup which tastes almost like the Qdoba soup. Also check my recipe for vegetarian Mexican Gumbo, another favorite of mine.
