Can’t make it to Mexico?   Then make your own Tortilla Soup ala Michele the Trainer

Which, of course, means you don’t need tortillas!

Shopping list:

Organic Red Tomatoes, any variety is fine, heirlooms are better!

Organic white and/or purple onion

Organic Carrots–diced small

Organic Celery–diced small

Organic Frozen Corn Kernals

Organic powdered Cumin  ***caution…less is more….start with 1 Tablespoon….use less and then taste at END of cooking to determine if you need more**

Celtic Sea Salt, to taste

In a 4″ mulling ball (giant tea bag ball or mesh ball), put a bunch of Organic Cilantro, a couple of Bay Leaves and one OPTIONAL Jalapeno, and a couple Organic Poblano or Organic Anaheim Chilis <goal here is to toss it all when soup is done>

  • Fill a large pot HALF FULL with water & put on the stove–
  • Fill a high speed blender full of tomatoes, and blend–then dump into pot on stove
  • Fill again with half tomatoes and half onions (I used 2 full onions)–the dump that also, into pot on stove
  • Add the remaining ingredients
  • Simmer & Stir until carrots are as cooked as you desire and all flavors are blended
  • Salt and add more Cumin to taste

Now it’s ALL about the GARNISH…..

Tortilla Soup Toppings:  I call Toppings “Floaties”…..to me, soup is all about the Floaties

Fill a pretty plate with:

Finely diced organic onion and/or organic scallion

Organic Lime Quarters  ***note…the better these limes are, the better this soup will be….really!!!***

Finely Chopped Cilantro (chop or cut by hand with kitchen shears)

Optional:  Cubed Organic Avocado

Strips of Organic Corn Tortillas, of course

Organic Brown or Organic Wild Rice (already cooked)

Michele the Trainer’s Pico de Gallo is a nice add (recipe in this book:  http://www.michelethetrainer.com/checkout
