Sarawind, we made your tortilla soup recipe in the slow cooker for the Christmas Eve meal and it is a winner that will become a regular at our house in both places. This is the easiest and tastiest soup ever! Sarawind, if you have not seen the movie "Tortilla Soup," run, don't walk to your DVD rental house. You will love it. We served this soup with a lot of toppings: chilies, cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, avacado slices, green onions, and extra tortilla chips. (Those giant bags of tortilla chips at WaterColor Market are the best I've ever had.) We made a salad of spinach, red onion rings, avacado slices, and Texas ruby red grapefruit sections to serve with the soup and made flan for dessert. My family was so happy with this simple meal. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us on this Board and let me know what you think of the movie, okay?
