Black Bean and Chicken Tortilla Soup
There’s nothing better than a classic Mexican Tortilla soup. Our Casa M Spice Co® Uncontrolled Free Range® seasoning adds an incredible spicy flavor with a smokiness and a wealth of other background flavors to enhance this classic recipe.
The exact origin of tortilla soup is unknown, but we know that it comes from the area of Mexico City in Mexico. It is so popular that you find it on menus and in home kitchens all over the world. What’s great about this soup is that it is light enough that it can be had at any time of year not just during cold winter months.
In our version we add black beans and corn along with Casa M Spice Co® Uncontrolled Free Range® and Chain Reaction® seasoning blends to give us the spiciness and savory flavors traditional in a tortilla soup. You can adjust the amount of Casa M Spice Co® Uncontrolled Free Range® depending on your preferred heat level, or use our original Free Range® blend for less heat.
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice
