I'm getting tired of seeing the so-called tortilla soup recipes running around that are nothing but a glorified chicken soup with tortillas added. Here's the real McCoy. Similar to the recipe at Houston's restaurant (modified, of course, to suit my tastes)
For a beef version check out my recipe #261711.
Another Diane Kochilas recipe, called 'white' because it contains no tomatoes. The addition of the wine is mine and can be omitted--but I like the sauce that results. Add or subtract garlic to your taste.
One glance at the ingredients and I just loved the sound of this recipe. When I made it, I was not disappointed. It can be served hot or cold, depending on the time of year, your personal preferences and what else you are serving on the day - or evening. Adapted from Rodale's 'Savory Soups and Stews: 100 Hassle-Free Homemade Meals'.
This is my father-in-laws recipe for chili. I love to make it on a cold winter night. Sometimes I serve it with Corn Chips in the bottom of the bowl, topped with the chili and then top the chili with grated cheddar cheese
I created this soup on a chilly spring evening. It's a light but satisfying vegetarian soup flavored with cumin, oregano, pasilla chile and lime, served with Chihuahua cheese (or another Mexican queso fresco - fresh white cheese). Plus, it's topped with adictive little crispy-fried lime-chili tortilla strips!
This is a light but filling soup that's easy to make and tasty. Note: This is a salty soup that can be made with white miso, but if you mix red and white, the flavor is superb. Some cooks drop an egg into the soup as it cooks, and/or add mushrooms or slices of white radish or potato. It can be served by itself or poured over a bowl of rice to make a gruel, accompanying a dish of fish and yellow Japanese pickles called takuan.
