every year my in-laws host a super bowl party & every year i look forward to my mother-in-law’s “soup bar.” she always has two – three soups cooking on the stove for everyone to enjoy, it’s a great way to serve the crowds. last year her tortilla soup was especially good, so i thought i’d share (hope you don’t mind stef)!

*just a little update… my mil made it again this year, & it was just as yummy as i remember. this time though, she wanted to change it up a bit, so she also added 1 can of black beans (drained) & 1 can of corn (drained). just thought i’d share.
