Clearly we've got a thing for Mexican food in this house. I mean, we did have our wedding in Mexico! But I'm not sure you could call any of our recipes authentic...okay, not all of them. But we do have some authentic ones (I'll put those on the to post list soon, promise)! What I can tell you is that they are healthy and delicious! 

This tortilla soup is thick, creamy, and hot (both in spice and temperature)!  Plus, it is jumping with color. We've also been working hard on adding to our youtube channel you guys! Make sure to check us out and subscribe to see more mom wife foodie happenings!
