At present on the high of my “favourite issues I’ve ever preserved” listing! Freezing Rooster Tortilla Soup Starter is a improbable solution to take what’s in abundance in the course of the summer season, and tuck it away as one thing extremely helpful and scrumptious for the winter months.

I really like stuffing the freezer stuffed with excessive worth objects like this! And when you’ve got tomatoes and peppers to protect, that is the proper use for them!

The concept of a “soup starter” is to protect what’s contemporary and in-season by cooking all of the veggies… issues like tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, and candy corn, into slightly flavor-packed stew, after which freezing it. Come dinner time, all you want is a bag of soup starter, some broth, hen, and a can of beans. It’s the quickest and yummiest dinner you may think about, coming collectively in about 10 minutes and tasting like summertime! You may’t beat it.

I put up 6 luggage of this final 12 months, which wasn’t almost sufficient. I’ll be doubling that *a minimum of* this 12 months! My aim is to eat hen tortilla soup as soon as a month or extra.

That is each Karl’s and my favourite soup– for those who’ve by no means made it, you have to! Tortilla chips are crushed within the backside of your soup bowl, and the soup ladled over high. Then it’s topped with cheese, bitter cream, and cilantro. The chips get slightly bit soggy and are SO GOOD swimming beneath the spicy tomato-y broth! Karl prefers to maintain his crunchy and simply dunk them or eat them alongside the soup. Both means, Rooster Tortilla Soup has earned a everlasting spot in our month-to-month dinner rotation.
