Thanks for sharing your success with us, scott!
Yummy, my husband asked me to make the chicken version with beef so I did not he is in heaven.. I tripled the batch and canned some for lunches.. I used good sized chuck steaks in place of the hamburger. I trimed a lot of the fat and seared them first.. yum
That sounds absolutely delicious!!
Excellent! Was looking for a good beef tortilla soup recipe. Why does it always have to be chicken, right? I just got some fresh beef from the store, made this right away. Thank you so much! Made a huge pot so I can have leftovers tomorrow and maybe share some ;)
Exactly Kristin! So glad you enjoyed it!
This recipe is awesome! Really tasty and easy to make. I personally like food really spiced up so I doubled the cumin and chili powder but that’s totally just a personal preference, this soup is amazing just on it’s own.
So happy to hear that! Thanks Zach!!
I like your recepie. I guess that is the best recepie I have ever cooked. I need to eat all the kinds of soups.
Can’t find the recipe!
Perhaps I missed this, but would like to know # of calories per serving and # of servings when following the amounts in the recipe.
I made this yesterday and we loved it. It is soooo good!!! A keeper!
Hey Bette- I don’t currently have an app/plugin for that info. I’m sorry!
This looks relish. Where did you pick up the gorgeous soup cups?
Haha!! I mean delish. Stupid auto correct!
They’re from Williams Sonoma! I think they just have them, I always search “copper” to find them. And my phone always autocorrects to relish too :) LOL!
This soup is fantastic!! I’ve made this soup many times now and really like it compared to other recipes.
Just so happy to hear that! Thanks Alma :)
Thanks so much Kathy! Hope you’re well!
