I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Tortilla Soup -- Dairy Free

Finding good soups or a taco soup that is dairy free is a big challenge.  

Here's a soup that my daughter really likes.

Tortilla Soup (or Taco Soup as my daughter calls it)
(I found this in Everyday Food by Martha Stewart)

1 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves
1 tsp chili powder
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans black beans
1 can chicken broth (boullion would work, too)
10 oz package frozen corn
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup crushed tortilla chips (I used some leftover taco shells)
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice.

1. In large saucepan, heat oil medium.  Cook garlic and chili powder until fragrant about 1 minute.
2. Add tomatoes with juice, beans, broth, corn and 1 cup water.  Season with salt and pepper.
3. Bring soup to boil, reduce to simmer.  Add tortilla chips and cook until softened about 2 minutes.  
4. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.  Serve with extra tortilla chips.

**I froze this soup and it freezes really well. The tortilla chips get a little soft, but you could always freeze a portion before adding the tortilla chip. And then add tortilla chips after unthawing.**
