    Luvfood's Note:

    This is a recipe from Tyler Florence. Really comforting and delicious. See my recipe for the stock on Zaar, it is really simple to make. I don't dress up my soup with all the extra's. Only the lime and cilantro it adds that special yum factor and balances out the heat!

      My husband and I REALLY enjoyed this. I have to admit I was skeptical because there are so few seasonings. To my surprise, it was spectacular! I added a 14oz. can of diced tomatoes, then added rotisserie chicken to the soup and allowed it to simmer along with the broth. I used all the suggested toppings. IMO the avocado, cilantro and lime are a must! I used pepper jack cheese w/ jalapenos, no salt & pepper. Just divine! Thanks Luvsfood!

      There's a Mexican restaurant in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that made delicious tortilla soup - this is pretty darn close! I served it over fresh avocado and topped with shredded cheese. I also like to serve it with a side of tortilla chips that you can either soak in the soup or eat separately. YUM! It was absolutely delicious and even better the second day. Thanks for a great recipe!
