Last year I tagged along with my husband Colm to a work conference in San Antonio. Our first vacation without the kids in over 14 years! We had a lot of fun exploring San Antonio, strolling along the Riverwalk and visiting historic places like The Alamo. (We stayed at a haunted hotel, The Menger Hotel right across the road from The Alamo. But the only thing that haunted us was the boys basketball tournament participants that were staying in the rooms above ours, lol.) While we were in San Antonio I became obsessed with Tortilla Soup. I ordered it nearly everywhere we ate, along with a margarita! I mean when in Texas, right?!? I couldn’t wait to get home and recreate the recipe.
I looked up several recipes in search of the perfect one. The recipe from Ree Drummond, otherwise known as The Pioneer Woman, came highly recommended, but all the recipes were so complicated with tons of prep-work, and I didn’t have the time or patience for that.
So I decided to create my own version of Tortilla Soup. It was easy, quick to make and so delicious… everyone liked it. And it goes really well with an Inside Out Grilled cheese made with pepper jack cheese.
