Dks Texas Tortilla Soup
90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
21 ingredients
6-8 servings
This came from The Houston Chronicle on Wednesday, January 17, 1990. My US Navy husband was being transferred overseas to Brechin, Scotland and we were visiting with family in Houston before flying out. Found this recipe and have been carrying it around ever since. It's become my signature dish! Don't be put off by the list of ingredients. This soup goes together really quickly. I always double this and have even tripled it. We always make WAAYYY more chips than the recipe calls for. My one tip would be don't settle for bagged tortilla chips. Take the time to fry up some fresh; it makes all the difference in the world.
