    D2thaK's Note:

    This came from The Houston Chronicle on Wednesday, January 17, 1990. My US Navy husband was being transferred overseas to Brechin, Scotland and we were visiting with family in Houston before flying out. Found this recipe and have been carrying it around ever since. It's become my signature dish! Don't be put off by the list of ingredients. This soup goes together really quickly. I always double this and have even tripled it. We always make WAAYYY more chips than the recipe calls for. My one tip would be don't settle for bagged tortilla chips. Take the time to fry up some fresh; it makes all the difference in the world.

      This was really a surprise. I wasn't liking the flour taste while this was cooking. Never had a real thick tortilla soup before. But once every thing came together it turned out to be absolutely awesome. Now I don't know if I will ever be able to eat the watery stuff again. I made as posted except I cut the recipe in half, only DH and I. So have one serving left and can't wait to see if it heats up well. I did stir fry my corn tortillas in my wok works great, it is a must to make them fresh. I did omit the avocado only because I was out. DH said as I gave him his dish "what a pretty soup". Great recipe and a keeper for sure. Thanks for posting. :) Made for Spring PAC 2011.
