Happy One Pot Wednesday!
Today I'm sharing a one pot recipe that we make often in our house: Tortilla Soup! The original recipe is from Epicurious.com, but I like to add a few handfuls of frozen corn during the cooking process, as well as top with sliced avocado and shredded cheese. It's got tons of flavor without being too spicy. Serve with a salad and you're good to go. Enjoy!
