Jalapeños and lime complement each other perfectly in this spicy Mexican classic. This recipe is from vegcooking.com I'm not really big on the meat replacement products so sometimes I leave it out or substitute portabello mushrooms or something similiar to that. *For a spicier soup, use 2 peppers and 1/4 cup hot sauce .
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
- 10 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 serrano peppers or 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 6 cups vegetable stock
- 12 ounces vegan chicken or 2 cups chopped portabella mushrooms
- 1 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
- 2 tablespoons green chili sauce
- 1⁄3 cup lime juice, fresh
- black pepper, to taste
- cayenne pepper, to taste
- 1⁄3 cup cilantro, chopped
- 4 corn tortillas, cut into strips
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion, garlic, and hot pepper, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Stir in the stock, Chickette, tomato, hot sauce, lime juice, pepper, and cayenne.
- Simmer until the "chicken" is cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and adjust the seasonings as needed.(see description).
- While the soup is cooking, preheat the oven to 350°F Spread the tortilla strips on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crispy.
- Top the soup with the tortilla strips.
Made your recipe pretty much as given, using the portabello mushrooms! Even though I'm not a big fan of the mushroom (unless it's raw!) my other half is, so . . . Must say that your soup has a great taste combo, & we both thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!]
