“Tortilla soup has become a staple for Tex Mex restaurants. It is a great way to begin a meal, or to serve as a main dish with the addition of rice and meat. The tortilla soup at Qdoba has earned a reputation for being a perfect fit for a Craft 2 combination, the foundation of our Mexican Gumbo, or as a belly-warming midday meal.”
