Soups are such a great one pot. They are fairly easy to make, they are filling, and they are always great on a cold day. This is a great simple recipe that came from my friend Karen. I call it Karen's Easy Tortilla Soup. This recipe has evolved a little over the years, and it is one that my family loves. My hope is that you will also.
