Who doesn't love a nice, warm, crispy bowl of Mexican Tortilla Soup? Perhaps I'm being a tad over-zealous, but when colder weather arrives or a rainy day rolls in inevitably my palet starts craving for some tortilla soup. While it may seem like tortilla soup has been around forever, it has only been served in restaurants and widely known in the culinary community for about 30 years. The tortilla itself is ancient dating back 10,000 years and tortillas in general ie, chips, shells, tacos etc. are a significant $6 billion annual industry in the United States alone.
Despite the newness of the tortilla soup recipe it is one of the hottest soups (figuratively and literally) on menus around the world, not just in northern Mexico or Southwestern US.
The primary ingredients for making tortilla soup include chilies, garlic, onion, tomatoes, corn tortillas, chicken stock, thyme and some sour cream if you want to dial-down the spice somewhat.
Here are some of the best recipes and videos showcasing the most delicious and easy recipes for making tortilla soup.
