Tomatillo Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars
This is a great soup that can be spiced up or tamed down depending on your individual taste. Keep in mind that you if can not purchase fresh tomatillos at your local grocery store you can substitute with canned tomatillos, drained and chopped. Try garnishing with sour cream, as indicated in the recipe. Top with a leaf of cilantro.

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Rating: 4.34 stars
This is a quick and interesting recipe to prepare posole for unexpected guests or to take to a potluck party. My husband loves it. I have played around with this recipe A LOT. You can use 1 (10 ounce) package of frozen corn instead of hominy, or delete the chilies or olives. I prepare mine depending on whether children are going to eat it or not.

This hearty soup is an anything-goes recipe! Try using carrots instead of red bell pepper; extra garlic, no problem! I love a lot of cilantro! Whatever your choice of veggies, it's wonderful and sure to please your family's tastebuds. At our house, I put a bottle of our favorite hot sauce on the table for those who like to spice up their tortilla soup. Garnish with Monterey Jack cheese and tortilla chips.

Hot or cold outside, this soup is light and refreshing. I first enjoyed this dish while sitting ocean-side in Mexico. Goes great with a margarita or beer and a side of chips and salsa. Use whatever chilies you want (hot or mild) depending on the amount of heat you enjoy. Serve in bowls with crushed tortilla chips or strips on top.

You can call this soup or chili, but either way it is wonderful! This recipe is also very adaptable to your personal taste. I recommend using Bill Echols' Taco Seasoning from this website. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if you like. I hope you enjoy!

Rating: 4.78 stars
This is my first attempt at making caldo de pollo. I think it turned out great. You might need to add salt to taste as my recipe doesn't have very much. I like to serve this with warm corn tortillas and a side of Spanish rice and refried beans. Please enjoy and let me know what you think.

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away. Garnish with grated Cheddar, avocados, and a splash of fresh lime juice.
