Creamy Corn Tortilla Soup

The other night my mom wanted to make soup, but we were out of broth. She came up with a delicious, creamy soup. Here's the recipe:

Creamy Corn Tortilla Soup

What you need:
1 lb. mild breakfast sausage
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 garlic clove
1-3 jalapenos (depending on heat)
1 green onion
1-2 bellpeppers ( The more color, the better!)
1 handful of cherry tomatoes or 2 Roma tomatoes
10-12 cups whole milk ( Raw is the best!)
6-8 corn tortillas

What to do:
Brown sausage in your soup pot. While the meat is cooking, chop up your vegetables.When the meat is done, add in the vegetables and spices. Saute for 5-7 minutes, making sure the garlic doesn't burn. Pour in the milk and stir. While the milk is warming up, chop the corn tortillas into strips. Add tortilla strips to the soup and let it simmer 10-12 minutes, until the tortillas are tender and start to breakdown. Serve with sliced avocados or guacamole.

This soup uses only one pot! It's so easy and so tasty! 
If you try it, please let us know how you liked it.
