Tortilla Soup

tortilla-soupRecipe for 4.  This is the recipe the Tercera Ladies worked from in their December cooking demonstration,  and it was delicious!

INGREDIENTS:

6 dried corn tortillas, cut into 1/4″ strips.
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
1 medium poblano pepper chopped  – you can use a spicier pepper if desired
4 cups chicken stock either knorr or homemade –  we actually used turkey stock
1 small can of tomatoes – we used fresh tomatoes without skins
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups shredded chicken/turkey (leftovers!)
1 avocado cut into 1″ slices.
1/2 cup cheese or sour cream
cilantro for garnish

METHOD:

Saute tortillas strips in hot oil.  Drain well.

Sauté onions, garlic and peppers until softened. Add to broth with tomatoes and salt, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add chicken and cook until chicken is  thoroughly warmed through.

Now cut avocado into 1″ slices.

Divide 1/2 the tortilla strips in the bottom of each bowl, ladle in the soup.

Garnish with remaining tortillas, avocado strips, cheese and cilantro

Buen provecho!
