    A lovely spicy soup. I used a ripe jalapeno, as that was what I had. Instead of frying tortillas, I used some tortilla strips that were intended for salads, but worked well here. Also, I just forgot the avocado (which then made a nice sandwich for me). Also, I used some turkey meatballs that I made during a meatball marathon a couple of days ago, and those worked just great. I reduced the recipe a bit to use three cups of broth, which was right for us for two servings, We really enjoyed this soup on this very cold night.
