Post-holiday days are always a struggle. Unfortunately build-ups eventually lead to let-downs. Discussions with co-workers revolve around yesterday’s grandiose fare making today’s lunch (the usual spinach salad) pale in comparison. The single remaining Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg sits on my desk saying, “Enjoy me while you can, Brenna. The next candy promotion of epic peanut butter proportion is in October.”
You know what always makes me feel better? Soup. Here’s a recipe for a light, yet hearty one. I feel I can call it “light” because there’s no cheese. Or cream. It cooks up quickly and the tortilla strips make an excellent topping– if you don’t munch on them too much during the soup preparation. The corn, chile, beans, and salsa also make it colorful. The perfect soup for a spring evening.
