Roasted Tomato Tortilla Soup

I’m a fan of soups, and my favorite is tortilla. This roasted tomato tortilla soup is a different version of the usual broth based version with black beans and corn, and is easy and delicious. It’s also a great way to use up tomatoes that aren’t quite the best — you know, anything from a [...]
