When I think about my favorite soup, I think about a wonderful tortilla soup in Tucson, Arizona. This recipe comes so close to the favorite tortilla soup we enjoyed so much. With each spoonful fun memories would flash back. The addition to the soup, we added mesquite wood smoked chicken. Wood smoked chicken provided a fabulous flavor enhancement with all the other flavors combined. Grab a bowl and spoon, and let’s enjoy some Mesquite Smoked Chicken Tortilla Soup together.

Well, 2015 is off to a perfect start! This week I celebrated my 40th birthday in style! My sister and her family traveled down from Michigan to be a part of the celebration. Having my sisters and niece here made this week so much more fun! Since we all live too far away to enjoy each other’s homemade meals, we are cramming a few family favorites in the short time we have. My sister-in-law is half Italian, so you definitely know what meal we begged her to make. She makes a killer homemade pasta meat sauce, and her sausage and peppers were to-die-for!
I love homemade Italian! If you are a regular here at Cafe Terra, you know that a happy dance while eating indicates a perfect meal. The sauce that she made has a hint of sweetness to give it a unique blend of flavors on your palette. To make it killer? Well… she made homemade meatballs to add to the sauce. Every bite is filled with love and happiness for sure. Who wants seconds on this fabulous Traditional Italian Family Dinner?
