I would make and eat soup year round… What is better than a bowl of soup, some HGTV, and a lazy weekend on the couch? Ryan is more of the opinion that you only eat soup if it is cold outside or if someone is sick. This soup, mostly because of the tortilla chips, is the one exception that I can make any time without commentary. I made and sent batches and batches to my Dad when my Mom passed away. So, it also makes me think of caring for others. It is easy to make and would be great to bring to someone if they are sick. Make two pots… Save one for your family and bring the other to someone who is sick or in need of care.
