The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Tortilla Soup


~~Cooler weather makes me crave soup. I love to use my crock pot in the Fall. Not only does it make supper much easier, but it also fills the house with a yummy smell.
Today I thought I would share a recipe for Tortilla Soup. I got the recipe from my Mom, who got it from a friend. It's one of those recipes that's so good, everyone requests it after eating the soup.

Tortilla Soup

*1/2 lb ground beef
*Garlic powder
*1/3 onion, chopped
*6 Cups chicken broth
*1 (14.5 oz.) can tomatos, undrained. (I like to use petite diced.)
*1 can creamed corn
*12 oz. Velveeta cheese
*2 tsp. cumin
*2 tsp salt (I never put this in but it was in the original recipe.)
*1 tsp pepper


*1/4 Cup corn starch
*4 Corn tortillas

~~Sprinkle the ground beef with garlic powder, cook and drain.
~~Combine the beef, chopped onion, chicken broth, tomatos, corn, spices and cubed Velveeta in a large pot.
~~Cook over medium heat until boiling, stirring often.
~~Mix the corn starch with a small amount of water and then add the mixture to the soup.
~~Cover and let simmer until thickened.
~~Right before eating, tear the tortillas into small strips and add to the soup.

***If you are making this in the crock pot, add all the ingredients except the Velveeta, corn starch and tortillas. Cook on low for as long as needed. Add the Velveeta about 30 minutes before you plan to eat. Also add the corn starch and water mixture and turn the heat up to high. Stir often. Add the tortilla strips right before serving.

Enjoy everyone!
