anybody have a real good tortilla soup?
I did it once and really liked it, but no idea where the recipe I followed is.[p]One thing I can tellya....when you make the broth, use chicken bones/carcass from a chicken or two that you cooked on the egg. A little hint of smoke in the soup is really, really nice in this instance.[p]Look foraward to seeing the recipes that folks post. Good tortilla soup might just be one of the top comfort foods![p]Cheers

Spring Hen just made some from a package we found in the store. It was really good. I would have to put it up with the best we've had at restaurants. Sorry, I can't remember what the name was on the package. Got it at Kroger. Just add chicken.[p]Spring "Count'n The Hours 'til Santa Comes" Chicken

Try this. I've made it several times and it is boffo![p]TORTILLA SOUP
4 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 bunch green onions, sliced
• 4 cups water
• 32 oz. box chicken broth
• 32 oz. box beef broth
• 15 oz. can Mexican-recipe stewed tomatoes
• 10 oz. can Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies
• 8 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained
• 8 oz. can creamed corn
• Two 4 oz. cans chopped green chilies

• ¼ tsp ground black pepper
• Juice of 1 lime
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese, for garnish
1 avocado, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks, for garnish
Lime slices, for garnish

Cook chicken in a large pot of water until no longer pink. Remove, cool, and cut into bite-sized chunks. Cook onions in a pan sprayed with PAM until soft. In another (large) pot, combine cooked onion and next 11 ingredients. Add chicken and simmer 30–45 minutes. Put chips in bottom of a large soup bowl. Add soup, and garnish with cheese, avocado, lime, cilantro and dollop of sour cream, if desired.
That looks really good. I've already added it to my "must do" list. Thanks.[p]Spring "Hungry Little" Chicken
I use a recipe very close to yours except I cook my chicken and onions in a veggie tray on the egg about 3/4 done. You may have forgotten to include your onions as an ingredient or are you saying that your onions are the green onions listed? Not being critical of your recipe, just being curious. As I read the recipe I could feel my mouth watering, thats some good soup !!!
The onions were the green onions mentioned. Your method will give me something new to try. Thanks!
tach18k,[p]I have a recipe from a Rick Bayless demo that I have made before that was really good, and I even cut a few corners. Like no epazote and store bought chips. I think this one is the same recipe. Thanks for the idea of trying it on the egg.
I'm sure the recipe is around here somewhere, but here are some tips:[p]cut tortillas into strips, fry.
grill all the stuff going into the soup, chicken breast, chilis, onion.
thicken broth with some of the fried tortilla strips, mixed with a boatmotor.
self serve like a taco bar, put what you want of each of grilled stuff and tortilla strips into your bowl, ladle thickened broth over it.
squeeze lime juice on it and garnish with cilantro.[p]
