“During our first storm of the season, I decided to make Tortilla Soup. I had never made it before. I found a recipe to work from, added and omitted a few things, and came up with this. It was a hit. Most of the things I cook are too spicy for some people, but I think this turned out perfect. My local grocery store offers freshly cut raw chicken and veggies, specifically for fajitas. It is a perfect way to cheat on the prep time.”
