I am so paranoid when cooking chicken and turkey I totally over baked them so they were a …

Meatball Tortilla Soup

I love tortilla soup. I’m very picky about a few things in life, though, and tortilla soup is one of them. Hamburgers are another, but I’ll save that for another day. This tortilla soup passed my picky test and I loved the spicy flavor, as well as the change-up of meatballs in place of chicken. I originally came across this recipe on a great blog …
