Fall is here! We don’t have AC in our apartment, and let me tell you, feeling the change in weather has gotten us so excited for the fall season. I am looking forward to boots, sweaters, crock-pot soup, and of course Trader Joes gluten-free pumpkin bread (We are obsessed).

Today has been a perfect Sunday, which had us craving football, cuddling, and homemade soup. Days like today are my favorite because we just lounge around the house and enjoy our home.ย Life can be stressful and we can get consumed by our routine, so it’s important to have days that are full of no routines or plans.

Jason and I decided to make some homemade tortilla soup forย our first soup of the fall season. Here below is a simple tortilla soup recipe that we use every fall/winter season. It’s easy, yummy, and hearty. Enjoy!

Tortilla Soup Recipe
1/4 cup canola oil, peanut oil, or other high smoke-point oil
