The Saturday Simmer: Tortilla soup recipes
My husband Ted's aunt and uncle live near Lake Chapala in central Mexico. On one of our visits, on one of those blazing hot days that sound so good to us here in Rhode Island at this time of year, we went out for lunch to a little local restaurant, and we ordered tortilla soup, nothing as inventive as this white bean chipotle chicken tortilla soup from Soup Addict, but very good. Yes, it is true: hot soup on a hot day will help you cool down. Eventually. The cooling doesn't happen right away, but it does happen. In the meantime, your mouth tingles from the chile peppers in the tomato-y soup, mingled with the bite of some lime juice and the crunch of tortillas. It's sublime, really.
