Tortilla Soup

I am trying out different tortilla soup recipes, in search of the one that does not require a lot of time to make and tastes wonderful to us. I have never been to Mexico and I have never tasted the “real thing”. I am not looking for something that tastes authentic, but something that we like.

This time I tried this recipe. I made some small modifications, mostly due to the fact that here in the Netherlands what you can buy in the supermarket is different from the US. I really liked the bell peppers in the soup. I added some corn because I did not have any beans.

Just put them on a baking sheet, sprinkle some olive oil on top, add some salt and pepper and mix a bit with your hands. I baked mine for about 12 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
