I'm making a batch of tortilla soup from a recipe that I found in a magazine. After researching a few other sources it looks like I'm going in the right direction.
The recipe I started with, called for the usual suspects; dark chili powder, chicken broth, vegetables, and 6 corn tortillas. Ok Im good. I made the base soup last night and of course I can't ever leave well enough alone, I started to look at other recipes.
Ok I am a dork. Is this soup to be blended or left chunky? I don't think I've ever orderd it out.I've had albondigas many times but it is always chunky.
Another little brainstorm, I have had a can of diced yellow tomatoes for sometime now. Getting my sons to eat tomatoes in stews and soup, well forget it. so I used them in soup base for the tortilla soup. Last night the middle son came in and sampled the soup in the still chucky state and I heard those wonderful sounds. "mmmmmm this is really good mom!" ...... Ha. He would never of touched it before.
So.. do I use the boat motor?
