A dear friend of mine introduced me to this soup. We don’t have Max and Erma’s restaurants here in Texas but we went on a small road trip to St. Louis and ate at one there. She made me try their tortilla soup and I fell in love! When I got home I searched online for copycat recipes but all of the ones I came across had cans upon cans of cream of something soups. Now don’t me wrong, those cans have their place but I don’t like to use 8 of them for one recipe! Then I found this recipe and I knew I had to try it! It’s been a few years since I had the original soup so it may not be an exact match but it is so so delicious anyway!
