In an effort to help out my kindred spirits, those poor overwhelmed souls who want to make home-cooked meals every night of the week but sometimes have more demands than time, I've decided to share some of my family's favorite "cheater" versions of my home cooking. Hands down, my San Antonio Style Tortilla Soup is the fastest from start to finish. If I crank my burner up to high, I can have dinner on the table in 15 minutes flat! That's impressive in my house!
One of the nicest things about this recipe is that (except for garnishments) the ingredients can be kept on hand in your pantry or long term food storage indefinitely. This makes the meal perfect for unexpected company or a backup dinner!
