This is a version of Emeril's quick tortilla soup. Easy tortilla soup with chicken broth base!!! Very yummy! I can't find fresh poblano chiles so have been using one Penzey's dried ancho pepper, seeded and chopped. Also have been using 4 tablespoons dried onion and 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder if fresh not available. If you have fresh cilantro, use 1/4 cup chopped in place of dried. The seasoning for the tortilla strips is #rz.243095. It is Emeril's creole seasoning recipe.
