On my last outing to Totoraku (the referral-only Japanese yakiniku place in the Teriyaki House on pico spot)... my friend took some pictures. They're now up on her blog along with a little review. Woo. Enjoy!
Chicken teriyaki is one of those ubiquitous Japanese dishes. In this video recipe, the CHOW Test Kitchen's Christine Gallary uses our Easy Teriyaki Chicken recipe to make a version that isn't an overly sweet mess.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Softened vegetables, including onions and bell peppers, amped up with spices like chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne, form the base of this tortilla soup. Chicken broth and tomatoes are added, along with soft corn tortillas that meld into the liquid to make a hearty, thick meal. Finally, shredded chicken is stirred in, and everything is garnished with crunchy tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, and scallions (avocados, pickled jalapeños, and cilantro would all work too).

For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.
