CEiMB - Tomato~Tortilla Soup and a Healthy, Colorful Dessert


Craving Ellie in My Belly was such a warm and comforting choice for this week: Tomato~Tortilla Soup chosen by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet.
We used fresh lime juice and baked our own tortilla chip strips, so easy too! Brushing a little canola oil over tortilla rounds, cutting into thin 1/4-inch strips, and baking for 12 minutes could not be easier.

You can get this recipe at the Food Network site here.
My only changes was adding corn to the soup. I used my immersion blender, making easy work of mild pureeing. You want small chunks of tomato. I also served multi-grain, toasted baguette slices with the soup for dipping. Delicious! We loved every bite Mary; thank you for hosting this week and picking such a perfect Fall dinner dish.
For dessert, I served Mixed Berries with Greek Yogurt~Limoncello Cream.

I've seen tortilla soups but never tried any. This looks amazing! And the yogurt berry dessert, too!

Your soup looks awesome, and I love the striped bowls! I used my immersion blender too; it just makes life simpler, doesn't it?

Those soup bowls are so cute!
It was a great recipe, we really liked it although I used "tamed" jalapenos so we didn't enjoy the spicey heat.

I can't wait to try this soup after reading everyone's blogs this morning! I love that you added corn. Sounds delicious. I'm running a little behind with my post this week on it. Love your bowls!!

I love the corn idea...I will have to try that next time. I am also super jealous of the striped bowls...must go shopping asap!
