Pomi tomatoes, from Italy, aren’t just for use in Italian food. I used a box of Pomi chopped tomatoes for a Mexican Tortilla Soup and it was delicious. I prefer to use Pomi tomatoes over canned tomatoes, because they contain 100% natural ingredients (oh yes, they are organic!) and are sealed in a BPA-free, stay-fresh package.
The chemical bisphenol-A is commonly referred to by the shorthand BPA). Bisphenol-A is an industrial chemical that has been present in many canned goods since the 1960s to help protect the integrity of cans and prevent microbial contamination of food.
But in the last decade, there has been growing consumer awareness about the health risks that BPA can pose, particularly to fetuses, infants and young children. A growing number of health officials are concerned about the role that BPA may play in childhood brain development and behavior problems, and some studies on animals have shown a possible link between BPA exposure and an increased risk of cancer later in life.

I’m a huge soup lover and enjoy eating a healthy meal from a bowl. This tortilla soup is so warming, flavorful, and filling. You can keep it light or add an array of toppings, such as chicken, avocado, cilantro, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Fun for entertaining! The flavor of this soup is very authentic. Baking the corn tortillas, instead of frying, reduces the calories.
My family has been hit with the flu, so I’ve been making lots of soup and this is an easy and quick recipe with ingredients such as chicken broth and garlic, which help cure cold and flues, or at least makes you feel a little better.
