Chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is close to mine. The TRICK for GREAT tortilla soup is to make the broth based soup, and then add fresh vegetables on top before serving! It makes the soup so amazing! Also, consider cutting and frying corn tortilla chips to put in soup vs packaged chips. Make sure to use corn vs flour no matter if bought or made, because the corn have Massa in them, which thickens the soup a bit!
Baked Mozzarella Sticks. These were pretty good, like the recipe says you have to eat them right out of the oven (when they cool off a little) otherwise they aren't good. The breading was really yummy and they were great dipped in marinara sauce. They weren't as good as restaurant style ones, not as soft and creamy but still good for making them at home. And easy too!
What buffets SHOULD look like... Why do we tempt and torture our friends with salty sugary snacks when these can be just as yummy and a lot healthier??
