Fast, Easy, Healthy Seafood Tortilla Soup

Fast & Easy Dinner: Shrimp and Tortilla Soup

Shrimp Tortilla Soup

My current favorite in the weeknight meal rotation is a Latin-inspired soup that I've designated the ultimate essential soup recipe. It's also the ideal fast and easy dinner. This departure from the more conventional chicken tortilla soup is light, low-fat, and gluten-free, yet so imbued with smoky, spicy, bright flavors. Best of all, it comes together in — no joke — 10 minutes! The recipe's designed for one, but can easily be doubled or tripled for a few. Want the technique? Then read on.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss tortilla with 1 teaspoon oil; season with salt. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes.
