Very good tortilla soup! I tossed in some dried epazote (it's all I had) with the tortillas and garlic, and I saved the chopped fresh cilantro as a garnish. I made a few little changes: I had a half jalapeno in the fridge to use up, so I diced it and added it with the tortillas, garlic and epazote. I didn't have any canned tomato puree, so I subbed in El Pato Tomato Sauce instead. I got lazy at the end, so instead of frying my own tortilla strips, I added some premade tortilla chips for the garnish. I also squeezed a lime wedge over my bowl of soup. DH hasn't tried it yet (he ate earlier in the evening, and wasn't hungry when the soup was finished), but I'm sure he'll love it when he tries it. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 09

Delicious!! We loved this - DH couldn't stop eating it and had three bowls! I bought cilantro and added it where it said to add epazote because epazote was not on the list of ingredients and the instructions never said where to add the cilantro. I think that I'll try some epazote next time where it says to add it and add the chopped cilantro as a garnish because I like cilantro fresh rather than cooked. Thanks for a great recipe that we'll make over and over. :)
