I spent lots of time in the studio yesterday and a little time tending to a sick kiddo who was home from school (a different one is home sick today). For dinner a quick, nourishing and satisfying soup was needed to go with leftovers from Sunday dinner. This Tortilla Soup is the perfect combination of rich flavors and earthy goodness that Rick Bayless dishes are known for and it comes together very quickly. I always use an extra chile and find that the recipe needs a good amount of salt to make it sing. Today there will be more painting and tending (and leftover soup for lunch) but that's enough about me...what are you up to this week?
