Tortilla Soup Quest/Challenge roundup #5

I can hardly believe that I started this quest almost a whole year ago.  Time definitely flies when you're having fun.  This is roundup numero cinco!  You  have linked up so many fantastic variations of Tortilla Soup over the last 11 months...and these are no exception.

I have been compiling a list of my favorite components to come up with my "ULTIMATE" version.  I hope to make a couple more versions in this last month...and to have as many more as possible linked up from YOU.  Yes, you!  Please join me in drooling over these bowls of Tortilla Soup...and hopefully adding more version to this caldo gigante!

Miranda from Mangoes and Chutney made a delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup that has "so much going on in this soup, it is fantastic. The white hominy gives it a flavor and texture I have never tasted before."  Okay.  I'm a believer!

Kate from Kate's Konfessions brought a Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup sure to warm us up in the winter...or anytime for that matter!

Next up is Christi from Grey Umbrella with a Chicken Tortilla Soup she calls "the easiest chicken tortilla soup!  (It's) delicious and filling, plus it freezes well."  Yum.

And just when you were beginning to wonder how many versions of Chicken Tortilla Soup are actually out there, Judy from Savoring Today brings another version to the table!  She likens it to having a burrito in a bowl and shares some great tips on how to make the best version possible.

Over at Uncanny Goodness, Milda put time and thought into her Roasted Chicken Tortilla Soup.  From the roasting of the chicken to the layering of the flavors, she brings us a fabulous SUPERbowl!

AmiNYC says "This soup comes together so quickly, you’re done almost as soon as you start. Everything in one pot, everything at one time. Can’t possibly be easier than that."  Check out her delicious Tortilla Soup with toasted spices I can almost smell from here over at From the Bookshelf.

Glennis of Can't Believe We Ate brings us Christina's World Famous Tortilla Soup, of which she says "Seriously yum...this is one of the very best Tortilla soups I’ve ever had.  So far."

Next up is this gorgeous Low Calorie Chicken Tortilla Soup brought to us by Candy of Eating Well on the Road, who developed this version because she loves a good hearty Tortilla Soup, but not the calories and sodium that sometimes accompany it.

Inspired by the film Tortilla Soup, my friend Deb from Kahakai Kitchen decided to go nuevo and bring some beautiful "arty" bowls of Tortilla Soup.  Not only was it tempting to the eyes, but also satisfying and delicious in the belly. I'm loving the guacamole in the bowl. So fun!

Trying my first version that was actually sort of sweet and laced with cinnamon here at girlichef, I loved the deep red satisfying broth in this Ancho Chicken Tortilla Soup.

I hope you'll join me in the last month of my quest to find the ULTIMATE TORTILLA SOUP!

Would you like to comment?
