    TheSlyBear's Note:

    Simple but satisfying. It's easy to make, but it might be hard to get hold of epazote if you're not in the South. It's also easy to convey this to a vegetarian recipe.

    1. 1
      Place the chile pieces and tomatoes (with juice) into a blender or food processor.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onions and garlic and cook until starting to brown, about 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pick out the onion and garlic with a pair of tongs or slotted spoon, and transfer to the blender. Process until smooth.
    4. 4
      Return the pan to medium-high heat. When hot, add the puree and stirring frequently, cook until thickened to the consistency of tomato paste, about 10 to 12 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the broth and epazote. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and season with salt.
    6. 6
      Divide the poached chicken, diced avocado, cheese and tortilla chips between serving bowls. Ladle soup into bowls, and garnish with the sour cream and a lime wedge.
