I like to keep Mexican food on our regular rotation for dining out. For some reason, though, I don’t make much Mexican food at home. We’ve had a cold snap in Atlanta, so today I was in the mood for a hearty soup with a little spice. I always enjoy tortilla soup when we’re having Mexican food, so this is my version of this delicious liquid treat.
Jim is a lightweight when it comes to spice, so I have to keep the heat level to a minimum in everything I make. Mrs. Dash makes a Chipotle Seasoning which I use for adding a little heat and chipotle flavor. Depending on how much kick you want in your soup, the amount of chipotle seasoning, chili powder, and jalapenos can all be added to taste in this recipe. My version was only slightly spicy, but if you like more heat by all means go for it.
