Baby, it’s cold outside!


Everyone loves soup in the winter.  Soup warms you to your tippy-toes, it’s good for you, and you don’t need teeth to eat it.  While soup’s not usually thought of as a party food, my friends enjoy having a big pot of soup on the stove during parties.  Soup stays warm and good for several hours, it’s easy for self-service, and makes the house smell wonderful.  Here’s an easy soup recipe for this year’s Superbowl party, or just to warm you on a cold day.

Party Tortilla Soup

  • 4 – 18.6 ounce cans Chicken Fajita Soup with Rice and Beans
  • 1 – 26.5 ounce can black beans, do not drain
  • 1 – 15.25 ounce can whole kernel corn, do not drain
  • 10 – corn tortillas

Empty all the cans into a big stewpot over medium high heat. Cut the tortillas into strips and add them to the soup. Cook the soup until it starts to boil and the liquid thickens a little from the tortillas, stirring occasionally to keep the tortillas from sticking to the bottom of the pot. You can add a little flour or cornstarch if the soup is too thin. Serve the soup immediately or reduce the heat to low and allow the party guests to serve themselves.
