    Tortilla soup

    I posted a bowl of tortilla soup in the SUWYAC topic and troymeister asked for the recipe.

    OK - here is my attempt at a recipe. The thing is, I go online and d/l several recipes that look promising and take what looks good from each. That works - most of the time... The two recipes I used were Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup! by Valerie Marie and posted on food.com, and Chicken Tortilla Soup posted on The Pioneer Woman. And this is what I think I did:

    TORTILLA SOUP

    Enough oil to saute the peppers, onions, and garlic. I usually blend half and half olive oil and butter.
    3/4 med onion - chopped
    3 cloves garlic - minced
    1 med bell pepper, or 1/2 each bell and red pepper
    1 med jalapeno pepper chopped - include the "innerds" if you like more heat
    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I may use leftover smoked pulled pork next time.)
    1/2 package frozen plain corn
    1/2 can black beans drained and rinsed
    1 10 oz can Rotel tomatoes and green chilis - I used fire roasted
    4 cups low sodium chicken broth
    1 small can tomato sauce
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

    I garnished with grated Monerey Jack Cheese, chopped cilantro, sour cream and avocado. You could also use chopped red onion and/or salsa or pico de gallo.

    Cook the chicken in the chicken broth until tender enough to shred (~ 15 min) Remove chicken from broth and shred. Return to pot and continue cooking.
    Saute onion, garlic, jalapeno and green/red peppers in oil. Add to pot.
    Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot and simmer at least 30 minutes more, and up to an hour.

    Serve with warmed tortillas or your favorite corn chips if desired.

      I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I put it in my food.

      One cannot have too many grills.

            The recipe you've come up with is real similar to the recipe I've tinkered on for awhile. If I've got them, I add fresh cilantro and a bit of lime juice to this soup right before serving, but the soup is very good without either. The recipe is real adaptable to whatever you have in the fridge for leftover meat and veggies. The ingredients that seem common to most recipes are beans, tomato, chiles, and warm spices in a savory light broth.

            I've seen some versions of this recipe call for putting the tortilla chips in the soup. Eww. I like my chips on the side, just like you.

            Hmmm. This thread has me hankering to make this for supper tonight. I have some smoked turkey in the freezer to use up. And we're supposed to get 8+ inches of snow starting tonight going through all day tomorrow. Good time for a hearty soup.

              Sounds good. I too search and combine/modify recipes. I make my Chicken Tortilla soup with roasted Hatch Green chilis, cream, and no beans. Now I'm hungry and it's only 10:00!

              IwoaGirl, I have made it once with smoked turkey and it was great

                It's a staple in every Houston Tex-Mex restaurant and a personal favorite of mine, great work !!!!

                Also serve with strips of fried tortillas for a crunchy condiment !!

                    Thanks Ron. Just ran across this post. And this soup sounds really good. I don’t make soup often but this one I will have to try. Pending Wife’s approval.

                      RonB Your soup was delicious. I followed your recipe just about verbatim. Only thing I forgot to pick up some cilantro.
                      I will do this again for sure!!

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill
                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Grilla pellet smoker
                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      kareubequ bbq smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      masterbuilt gas smoker
                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
