Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup
Tortilla soup is hands down my all time favorite soup. It’s my husband’s favorite too. I honestly don’t know why more restaurants don’t offer it on their menu. It’s simple, comforting and fun for the whole family. For this version, I used the flavors of chipotle to make it nice and smoky.
The flavor of this soup is incredible, and the toppings make it even more fun. I added crumbled queso fresco cheese, freshly chopped cilantro and chopped avocado. For the tortilla strips, I just sliced up some corn tortillas and tossed them in my deep fryer. If you have never made fresh nachos before, it’s way easier than you think. Just preheat the oil to 375° in your deep fryer and drop in your sliced tortillas. (You could also use 2 – 3 inches of oil in a skillet on your stovetop.) Then you use the same “bubble rules” for frying as you would with frying chicken. Wait until the bubbles have really slowed down and then take out your tortillas. Place them on a cooling rack or paper towels to drain.
