Amazing Tortilla Soup…

Well, I know that most of you venture to my blog to find yummy baked goods, but this soup was so delicious I just had to blog about it! I adapted a crock pot recipe I found on allrecipes and just cooked it on the stove top for a couple of hours. Within two days the entire pot was gone…we found ourselves eating it for lunch and dinner and it just got better the second day! If you are looking for a quick delicious soup to warm you and your family, try this one! You will not be disappointed!

2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups water
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth ( I added a bit more of this)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf

1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn

1 can black beans (rinsed)

    That tortilla soup looks nice and hearty! I also like your election cupcakes. Btw, I’ve never made part shortening part butter frosting. Actually the whole frosting thing is pretty new to me. I’m not much of a frosting fan, but I make it for others.. Sorry for the rambling, but my question is, how did you find it? The wilton cake decorating frosting that is purely shortening feels pretty slick to me. Does the butter help cut the slickness?

    I also have an award for you at my blog!

    My family and I loved this soup! We left out the hot sauce but my brother promptly added some to his portion.

    We used sharp cheddar and a dollop of sour cream and it was SO amazing.

    Thanks for the recipe!
