The Saturday Simmer: Tortilla soup recipes

White bean chipotle chicken tortilla soup, from Soup Addict (via Soup Chick).

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.

A few tortilla soup variations caught my eye this week:

Vegetarian tortilla soup, from 101 Cookbooks

Creamy tortilla soup, from Love and Lemons

White bean chipotle chicken tortilla soup from Soup Addict

Crock Pot creamy chicken tortilla soup, from Eat Live Run

Shrimp tortilla soup, from Laylita's Recipes

Sweet potato and kale tortilla soup, from Local Milk

Tortilla soup, from Mexico in My Kitchen

Chicken tortilla soup with black beans and zucchini, from The Little Kitchen

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.
