Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup

We have finally surpassed 70 degrees in Seattle, and so I figured that it’s time to start heating things up in the kitchen too! This hearty soup has got to be one of the easiest and tastiest dinners that I have ever put together. It’s especially great since you can throw it in a slow cooker in the morning before leaving for the day and come home hours later to a hot and yummy dinner!

On a side note, it’s my husband’s 25th birthday this weekend and I’m looking forward to celebrating it with him!
