I’m a sincere lover of Mexican food – I crave it at least twice a month. When I was in college, I would indulge at the local taquería in muy grande burritos and never gain a single ounce. These days, if I so much as look at a burrito sideways, I gain five pounds.
Two years ago, Mr. CG and I were dining at our favorite local Mexican food restaurant. He ordered the chicken tortilla soup. I tried it for the first time, and fell in love. All the flavor of a delicious taco, in a bowl, but healthier and lower in calories ? Sign me up, señor. Since the restaurant was reluctant to share their recipe, I spent over a year trying to capture the same flavor by tweaking my own recipe for sopa de tortilla de pollo.
On a cold winter day, there’s nothing I want more than a hot bowl of soup And a nap. But the latter is not happening. Here’s my recipe for ‘taco in a bowl’. It’s yummy yummy to your tummy. Muy bueno. Enjoy.
