I would use cilantro instead of parsley in most of these recipes, it has a more authentic Mexican flavor.

I tried the tortilla soup from Packit Gourmet earlier this summer and it was fantastic! This one looks great too, but the one from Packit Gourmet was really, really easy. I didnít have to chop or prep anything and it was ready in about 7 minutes. Tasted great and it seems like it would be even better now that the weather is getting a little bit colder. I always like a nice soup on a cold night!
