Most of you will definitely fall off from your chair when I say this: I never had Tortilla Soup! And it gets even worse.. I only heard of this soup about a week back… In my defense, the only thing I can say is that, in India, it’s not a common dish. Yeah.. yeah, there are many more such dishes which are not common in India, but I still tried them. How could I miss this ? I had Tortilla chips, Tortilla Wrap, Tortilla Pizza, but never thought you could dip it in soup too!
Whatever the case, the main point is that I finally discovered it 🙂 Thanks to my Blog hopping addiction, I came across an event which is hosted by Girlichef where she is in a quest to explore more options or variations of Tortilla Soup. So, I started my research on the soup, what is different or special about it? I really couldn’t find much except that it’s probably originated from Mexico and is usually made with tomato as the base ingredient. I might be wrong out here !! I even watched the movie ‘Tortilla Soup’ and enjoyed it completely.. a simple happy family movie, however I couldn’t understand why is the movie called Tortilla Soup? Did I miss something, some in-depth meaning which was too difficult for my tiny brain to absorb?! 😛
Phew! Enough… Why was I even trying to learn so much on this? Just cook, eat, and enjoy. Does the ingredients and directions I used, fits the criteria? I don’t know! We just enjoyed the crunchy bite in every spoon of that soup.
Thanks Girlichef for hosting this event, and helping me discover this soup.
