I had to be outside at 6:30 AM this morning. I don’t like to be out this early, and I especially don’t like it when it’s 0 degrees. That’s right, there wasn’t even a number on the thermometer this morning. It is a soup, warm your bones, kind of day.
I came up with this meatless Tortilla Soup. Amazingly, my entire family loves it! I repeat, my entire family loves it! Victory!
