    Eddie Shipman's Note:

    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 Beef Enchilada Soup.

      The soup was easy to make and delicious. I agree with the chef, that it isn't just glorified chicken broth! The recipe says it makes 4 servings, but I'd say it was closer to 6, the servings were ample. The measurements for ounces I adapted as follows: 3/4 C diced carrots, 3/4 C diced celery and 2 medium size onions, chopped. The ingredients didn't list the corn tortillas, just the chips. I added about 10 diced corn tortillas to boil into the soup and the consistency turned out great.

      My favorite Tortilla Soup is from the Red Robin in Del Mar, Calif. This is almost identical. Very easy. I would start with 8 tortillas and go up from there - 10 was a little thicker then I like. You can always add more.

      I made this soup and it was wonderful. I changed the amounts a little though as follows: carrots, celery, oonions I used 1 cup each I used only 1/2 can rotel tomatoes & chiles 1 1/2 cans diced tomatoes with carmalized garlic 2 pkgs 1oz taco seasoning and instead of Milk I used 10 oz half and half. Wow what a punch!! This was absolutely delicious
