Today is one of those days when I don’t have a lot to say to you. So I’m going to be honest here. I’ve been feeling a little blue lately. I have no idea why. I probably need a little more RR. Or just a bowl of this Mexican Style Tortilla Bean Soup?
This is my favourite bowl of comfort food. I think I saw something like this on Pinterest a long time ago, and started recreating the flavours at home. The first time I made it, we polished off the entire pot. And since then, this soup makes a regular appearance at the dinner table. Because this is all you need. I wish I could sing. I would’ve distorted the Beatles song for this soup.
It’s hearty and filling and a one pot meal to soothe your soul on days when you are blue. I’ve made this with chicken, corn, tofu and today, beans. Top it with some grated cheddar, crushed tortilla chips, avocado, tomatoes and lots of cilantro to load this up with some more flavour. So there’s protein, fibre and lots of nutrition in just one pot.
Plus winter is coming. And we need to be armed. Umm too early?
If you try this out, tag your pictures #myfoodstories on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations and repost them to show you some lou back.
