There really isn’t a soup at Zupa’s that I don’t love, but one of my favorites is their Yucatan Tortilla Soup. There isn’t anything fancy about it, but I love the spanish flavor, the little bit of spice, the chunky pieces of grilled chicken and the fact it’s nice and light. I was looking for a healthy soup recipe to serve to some friends and family and I decided to recreate this Yucatan Tortilla Soup. It was delicious and I hope you give it a try this weekend. Best part about it, is this week many of these ingredients are on sale at a grocery store near you (chicken, cheese, sour cream, canned beans, tomatoes, cilantro, etc.).
