Me and my hubby recently had a date at Rumbi Island Grill. It had been a while since I had eaten there. I decided to get the soup and salad, hoping to eat something on the healthier side. I had completely forgotten how yummy their Bahama Mama Soup and house salad was. After, I thought it would be very simple to create a copycat of Rumbi’s bahama mama tortilla soup and house salad. I will share the salad recipe with ya tomorrow.
The great thing about the soup is, it really is simple. I knew that the soup included chicken broth and coconut milk along with fresh tomatoes and carrots. The fresh tomatoes and carrots are what make this soup different. It is a hot soup but includes fresh carrot and tomatoes which is a great combination. It really gives the soup a nice and fresh flavor.
Now you add chunks of grilled chicken, The grilled element also adds a unique flavor to the soup. Then add some mozzarella, which gets nice and melty followed by some crisp tortilla strips. It is all finished off with a fresh lime wedge for you to squeeze the juice over the soup. Another ingredient to give it a nice, fresh punch of flavor.
I did do a Google search for a recipe to get a starting point. I mean why re-invent the wheel? So, I found a version at food.com and made a few changes. I must say this tastes just like the original. YUMMY!
