Mexican Cabbage Soup

Vote for this contest contender!

This is one of my family's favourite soups. They love it because it tastes like a loaded taco, and I love it because it's super nutritious. It's loaded with cabbage, which is packed with vitamins and nutrients, and also aids in digestion. If you'd like to get a little fancy, add a little haystack of homemade crisped corn tortilla strips on top!

Looks and sounds yummy.
A lot of ingredients but still not complicated and what better way to eat healthy "good for you" food.

I haven't frozen this one in particular because it gets eaten up in 2 days usually (even when I make a HUGE batch) but I've made similar ones that have definitely frozen well. Just don't add the toppings before you do so :)

Thanks - I am always dreaming that I will have enough leftovers for another day but does not happen very often.
Good to know about freezing - just in case.
