I was inspired by a movie I watched this week which is one of my absolute favorite foodie movies – Tortilla Soup – Though there is a lovely storyline – one of my favorites about the movie is the Martin cooks throughout the movie, particularly for their traditional Sunday dinners!
The movie Tortilla Soup – “Three grown sisters, Maribel (Tamara Mello), Leticia (Elizabeth Peña) and Carmen (Jacqueline Obradors) try to cope and live with their father Martin (Héctor Elizondo); a veteran chef who is slowly losing his sense of taste. Martin has one simple rule: be at home for Sunday dinner and attendance is both mandatory and non-negotiable. A rift in the family develops when the sisters develop relationships and an obnoxious woman (Raquel Welch) sets her sights on Martin’s affections.”
I have made tortilla Soup so many times and each time it is a bit different depending on the mood and inspiration at that moment. Here is one of my favorite recipes in which I was influenced by a recipe I found on the site – “A Spicy Perspective”
