Chicken Tortilla Soup I
Yikes! I added about 1.5 tsps of chilli powder instead of the 2 tsps the recipe called for and oh my good heavens, the soup cleared out my sinuses and sent a fire down my throat and burned me inside out!!! And this is from someone who likes to eat whole jalapeno peppers and LOVES spicy Mexican food! But not this! All you could taste was chicken broth at first and then fire. My husband who likes things spicier than me even said the chilli pepper was way too strong and the flavor over-powered the soup. In the future, I will make this again but with some major changes. I added two Tbs of heavy cream because I like my soup a little creamy. More tomatoes. Cumin instead of oregano. I think I will omit the chilli powder all together and then play with adding a little... maybe 1/4 tsp to start. 1/4 tsp of salt would help. The Monterrey Jack cheese is a must! Sour cream is good, too and chips - we love the blue corn tortilla chips from Target. Avacado was an excellent addition, as well.
