“Mexican Tomato Soup with Chilli Nachos, Veggie & Feta Sprinkes” from “Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals”

Time taken to set up: 6 minutes, 16 seconds. 

Time taken to cook: 23 minutes, 6 seconds.

Maureen: Well, at least it was less than 30 minutes to make this. But more than 15.

Tim: I’m surprised you didn’t put more cheese on the nachos.

Maureen: I was anticipating your needs without talking to you! Gold star for me.

(Yes, that’s steam coming off of the bowl. So now you know it was hot.)

Nicholas (9): I think it’s just OK. It’s just like any other meal to me.

Maureen: So you think it’s nothing special?

Nicholas: Yup.

Maureen: Well I like it. Also, I hope you’re all feeling the love. I could not find a jar of roasted red peppers in West Greenwich for love or money, so I roasted them myself. That means the next time I make this, it will be even easier.
