mock tortilla soup & chicken tacos

Thought we’d try something other than American or Asian cuisine today. Recipes followed:

  • Tortilla Soup — not super authentic, but SUPER delicious! I added corn though the recipe doesn’t call for it.
  • Salsa Verde — This served as the inspiration, but I had to adapt heavily (and I basically made it a basic salsa pictured in this post) since I couldn’t find the right ingredients in the store. But still good.

    We finished the mock tacos the first night, with extra pita bread to spare. The soup was enough for a nice bowl for breakfast the next day, and then I finished off most of the remaining ingredients to make another two huge bowls for dinner. Yum!
