With the holidays right around the corner I was excited to create this spicy tortilla soup with shrimp & avocado! If you haven’t noticed I love Mexican flavors and this soup is the perfect combination of spicy and soothing to keep you healthy and cozy during the holidays.

La Morena is my go to for these chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and i love the jalapeno peppers in my salsa too. The flavors are authentic and I can snag it at Pete’s Fresh Market here in Chicago & you can usually find them at any grocery store just make sure to check the international aisle.

This recipe is simple and takes only about 20 minutes from start to finish – what’s better? I added the jalapeño for an extra kick but i love extra spicy flavors. I would recommend starting with no jalapeño and possibly adding it the next time to be safe.

Let me know if this warms you up and check out La Morena for more recipe ideas!

  6. Peted says:

    Your recipe for tortilla soup does not include tortillas. Is this on purpose?

    • shaheen khan says:

      I usually try to create recipes with a healthy twist! This is my take on a traditional ‘tortilla soup’ and doesn’t include the usual fried tortilla strips but instead avocado to top!
