"Yes layered soup, well that was their name ... "Creamy Corn, Chorizo and Bean Tortilla Chowder." It was at a small little Mexican restaurant in Taos, NM, about 10 years ago and it was amazing. The table next to me ordered it and it looked so interesting I had to try it. The soup was topped with small piles of the chorizo, avocado and olives, and cheese on top this beautiful creamy pale yellow corn chowder and then they took a bite and the bottom layer of the soup was black beans. It was picture perfect served in this big wide rimmed white bowl, it was almost to pretty to eat. Well it incorporates a spicy layer of black beans, onions and roasted jalapenos, topped with a perfect creamy corn chowder and then topped with small piles of the chorizzo, diced avocados with olives and a pepper jack cheese. A squeeze of lime and cilantro. Take advantage of cooking the chorizo, black beans and chowder well ahead of time so when it comes time to serve ... just reheat and plate up. I serve this with my chicken enchiladas with a red sauce. This is a great dish for friends or just family and it is really simple. Make some margaritas and time for party."

"Really excellent soup, SarasotaCook! Your recipes are always wonderful and worth the effort. You clearly know your way around the kitchen. I didn't add chorizo but followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. Excellent, excellent. My husband ate 3 bowls. Served with simple cheese and chicken quesadillas."
