Tortilla Soup

This delicious Tortilla Soup was made after a trip to a local restaurant. I loved the idea of the soup but the taste was not my favorite. So after a lot of experimenting this delicious tortilla soup was born. This is a great way to add vegetables into your diet even if the kids or hubby are not too excited about it. I added dulse flakes for extra vitamins too. This is a great recipe to use up leftovers. We have put in okra, spinach, zucchini, yellow squash, and so many other vegetables that I had in my kitchen so it changes seasonally. I also find a hand blender so much easier to use than a regular blender. We add the quinoa or couscous to give it a really rich thick soup but if I am out I add some couscous and it is still a really lovely soup. I love to save my chicken bones, onion skins and vegetable peels in the freezer and then make a big pot of bone broth as the base of my soup but store bought chicken broth is fine too. We just can’t use it because of hidden soy in them. Let me know what you think!
