CasaQ Tortilla Soup

On cold, rainy days I love cuddling up to a good bowl of soup. What makes this recipe so good is the secret ingredient of chipotle peppers. Don't even think about leaving it out, it just won't taste the same!

  • 24 oz can tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ lbs chicken breast shredded
  • 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  • Manchego or Monterey Jack shredded
  • Avocados sliced or cubed
  • Thin Strips of Fried Corn Tortillas or Tortilla Chips crumbled
  • Sour Cream

In a blender combine undrained tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, and sugar. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into a large pot with chicken broth, chicken and chipotle peppers. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Place cheese in bowls, pour soup on top, then garnish with tortilla strips, avocados and sour cream.

¡Buen Provecho!
