Thoughts On Tortilla Soup:

I don't know about you but I can eat soup all year around. It doesn't matter if it is hot outside I still like to eat soup, especially if it is great Tortilla Soup! I am a jalapeno lover so I like to add some fresh-cut raw jalapenos to my soup. If the jalapeno peppers are too hot for you then you can add some crushed red pepper. Where are my spicy friends? I know my last recipe was a Mexican dish but this falls into the soup category and I give myself a pass for posting it today.

Extra Information:

Did you know that tortilla soup was invented in Tlaxcala the Mexican state? Tortilla soups is a staple food for the Mexican people. Every family may make it just a little different but it is a sure thing you just may find some sort of tortilla soup in their house. You can learn more about tortilla soup by visiting Slurrp.

Quick Question:

Have you ever tasted tortilla soup? What do you think about the recipe I shared here? If you haven't tasted this Mexican soup I would like to encourage you, like always to give it a go and whip a pot of soup up. Another question for you. Did you see my last recipe? It is a Mexican recipe as well. You may like it. It is called Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas. It is a Mexican easy recipe you will love just as much as tortilla soup.

My Thoughts:


Here is a picture of a pepper plant my mother bought for me for my birthday. I thought you would enjoy seeing a picture of it. My daughter put it in a bucket and has been watering it. I can't remember the name of this pepper but it turns red when it is ripe and it has a smokey flavor to it. I wish it was an heirloom plant so I could save the seeds and grow more. They grow really big and I love them.

It has been a busy week so far. I am looking forward to the weekend to try some new recipes. I have a friend where I work who shared with me some taco chicken. I am still trying to get that secret recipe. It tasted super. I do know there is taco seasoning in the chicken but there is also other ingredients as well. I think recipes should be shared. I don't understand "secret" recipes that people do not want to share with others. I could understand if it was a donut chain or fried chicken empire but just a regular recipe that you cook at home should be shared with the world.

I think this is a good place in this recipe blog post to mention something that I heard and I can get your feedback on what you would do in that same situation. I was at an apartment complex and the neighbors upstairs were being very loud. I heard yelling and they had their windows open for everyone to hear. I know you might expect me to tell you I heard a couple fighting but that is not what I heard. I heard a mother yelling at her four year old daughter. It wasn't just once but it went on and on. It was hard for me to listen to. Some of the things I heard made me want to go knock on her door and ask if everything was ok. Actually if I am completely honest I wanted to go yell at the woman for yelling at her child like she did. I didn't do anything. I just left and thought about it a lot this evening. I felt so sad for that little girl. Kids should not be spoken to that way. What would you do in that situation? I know this is a serious topic to share in a recipe blog post but this is also my personal blog where I share things in my life. At any rate, I would love to hear from you about this recipe or anything else I write.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a super blessed day!
