Chicken Tortilla Soup I
Good recipe but i believe my changes made it great thanks to listening to other reviews 1) I uped the veg by starting with a holy trinity instead (onion, celery and green pepper - 1 cup each) sauteed in butter and EVOO for 20 - 30 minutes 2) then seasoning - I used (1 tsp each) Chili powder, Ground cumin & Oregano 3) I added 3 cups homemade stock & no water and 1 can crushed tomatoes & simmered very low for 20 - 30 minutes 4) Then I added turkey (leftover from Thanksgiving), green chilies, corn, black beans and cilantro - sorry no hominy (I live in the sticks) & simmered very low for 20 minutes 5) I garnished with sour cream, lime wedge, cilantro and picked jalapenos
