Thanks to DJ Foodie for sharing this lovely recipe and picture.
I live at the tip of Baja California Sur, in Mexico. There are hundreds of restaurants. They pretty much all have some variation on the following dishes: Caesar Salad, Tortilla Soup and Fish Tacos. Tortilla Soup is one of my favorite things to eat on this Earth. Unfortunately, in a land of tortillas, alas … I cannot eat them. Thus, this soup has been renamed “Soup without Tortillas”, but … in Spanish. Sopa sin Tortillas! – DJ Foodie
When I make it, I usually make a big batch. I'll eat some, and freeze the rest. Even with the meat in it, it freezes quite well. I've got some in my freezer, right now!I will slowly reheat the soup, pour it into a bowl and top with some cubes of a plain white cheese (Oaxacan, Fresh Mozzarella or Monterey Jack), and some sour cream. Usually in Baja, it's also served with fresh limes, cilantro, diced raw onions, pork rinds and avocado. If I had guests, I'd go through all that fuss, but I'm tired and lazy. It's easier just to add the cheese and cream.
