tortilla soup


so my cooking/baking mojo is BACK! not that i'm great at either of these things, but i can follow a recipe and get decent results. not so during pregnancy. everything i touched came out mysteriously "off". things i've made sucessfully dozens of times came out wrong. it was very frustrating, but i'm so glad it was only temporary. one of the first things i made (because i was so blessed by friends bringing me meals) was tortilla soup the other night. yum! i forgot how good this was and how good for you. i thought you may like to try it too...

Tortilla Soup

2 quarts chicken broth

1 can tomato paste

4 cloves crushed garlic

2 cups chopped/shredded chicken, cooked (leftovers work)

black beans

sea salt and pepper to taste

cook 20-30 minutes

add 1/4-1/3 cup lime juice and serve

top with chips, avocado, cilantro, cheese, sour cream, etc
