I participated in a blogger pot luck for Christy Jordan last month. This delightful blogger and cookbook author had a life changing accident, but thankfully, after a long recuperation, her recovery is on the horizon. Her publicist has kindly provided me with her new release, Come Home to Supper, which is chock full of delicious recipes perfect for the busy mom (or dad) who wants to feed their family with love. Christy’s Southern dishes are truly comfort food…and this tortilla soup is no exception.
I was worried that it was too spicy for the hubby’s tender palate, but with a nice dollop of sour cream and sprinkling of cheddar, he sang its praises. This is such an easy recipe….just dump the ingredients into a big stockpot and cook away. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal…and special enough to serve when you have a crowd coming over to watch a football game. It was piece of cake to throw together. And speaking of cake, you will go nuts for the array of cake recipes…most are twists on Christy’s Classic Chocolate and Chocolate Yellow Cake recipes. I will be baking one up soon.
