What’s Cooking

I was going to start cooking a new recipe every week and posting it on my blog. We got busy and I haven’t been trying new recipes recently. We have been eating a lot of our old favorites. I decided that I would go ahead and post one of our favorites because it will be new to others. One of my favorite things to make in the fall is Tortilla Soup. This is a recipe that I got from a family friend in high school. It is pretty quick and very delicious. The best part is I can make a huge pot and then freeze the left overs.  If you try it let me know what you think.
