ESPECIAL TORTILLA SOUP RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 8 Simply Especial Chickpea and Cilantro Tortillas, cut into 1 inch long strips
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 large cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 quarts canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade veggie stock
  • 2 pounds chicken breast, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
  • 3 cups canned crushed tomatoes (one 28-ounce can)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup lightly-packed cilantro leaves, plus 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Lime juice, salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Add half the tortilla strips and cook, stirring, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining tortilla strips.

Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion, garlic, and spices; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, bay leaves, salt, cilantro leaves, if using, and one-third of the tortilla strips. Bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes; remove the bay leaves.

In a blender, puree the soup in batches; pour it back into the pot. Add the chicken, bring the soup back to a simmer, and simmer until just cooked through.

Pour the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro, if using. Serve with lime wedges, cheese, hot sauce, etc.
