Chicken Tortilla Soup I
Not many recipes get 5 stars as-is, but this one nailed it. My changes were really just not measuring most of my things; I used a full can of hominy, a leftover bowl of corn that was probably a can's worth, and Better than Boullion with the tomato can full of water (which was roughly 3.5 cups). Oh, and I didn't have chile peppers, but didn't miss them. As it was simmering, I kept tasting it, expecting it to need a little something, but it never did.
The only thing I noticed is that it does come out pretty thick as is. It doesn't look all that thick in the pot, but if you don't thin it out a little, and then add tortilla strips and a little shredded cheese, it thickens up to a stew consistency immediately. So I added another couple cups of water until it felt right. And the family is even eating the leftovers!
