Easiest, Creamiest Tortilla Soup

A few years back I went to lunch with a girl that I worked with and I ordered this soup. Although I wasnt officially given the recipe, I went home and made the closest I could get to it. After a few tries I feel like I got pretty close. It is so yummy. It is a great cold night soup. Although it has corn tortillas chopped up in it I still like to have it with jalapeno cornbread! My kids and my husband have given it a thumbs up so I have added it to my recipes that I consider my family favorites. Soon to be a cookbook!

These are the ingredients you will need.

Brown your ground meat with the chopped onions.

Simmer meat, tomatoes, broth, cream of mushroom soup and water.
Add your seasonings at this point as well.

Add your corn, chopped tortillas and cheese, cubed.

This is your delicious soup! I have been told it looks like cheese dip but it doesn't taste like it!

Easiest, Creamiest Tortilla Soup
1 1/4 lb. ground meat
