    Look in the T's on the Recipe Index to find one that I posted. It's made with ground pork, even though most of the tortilla soup that I've eaten has been made with chicken.

    I heard tortilla soup is traditionally made "at the end of the month" when you don't have much more to cook (even chicken). And soup is pretty hard to mess up.

    Basically start with some chicken broth and cooked chicken (or if you have time, boil some chicken in salted water wtih celery leaves, carrot tops and some onion. Strain, debone chicken, and put back in pot.)

    Dice some onion, green and/or hot chilis, and canned tomatoes - add to broth and chicken. Bring to a simmer.

    Season it well. aAdd salt (if your broth isn't already salty enough), chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, whatever you have on hand.

    Meanwhile, cut some tortillas into 1/4 inch strips and fry in some oil. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with seasoned salt.

    I like to serve with some tortilla strips on the bottom of the bowl, then fill with soup. Top with shredded cheese, minced cilantro leaves and more tortilla strips. Some people serve avocado wedges.

    These are the basics and you can experiment and come up with your own famous recipe. is what it is...

          I always thought tortilla soup was a can of chicken & rice or chicken noodle soup. Heat up the tortilla on the stove, cut it up in little pieces in ur hand and throw it into ur bowl of soup!

          j/k. I've eaten it in restaunts and my way at home.

          Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

            That sounds like a good recipe for my "Can-opener Cook" section, along with most of my commod recipes.

            Actually the first tortilla soup I ever had was at a very upscale restaurant. Just the broth was to DIE FOR!! And I think it had cilantro and other ingredients too.
   is what it is...

                What to do with leftovers?
                by between2worlds
                It's my turn to cook today and tomorrow and so tonight I had a little of this and some of that but not quite enough of anything to go around the table.

                So I dug out one of my favorite leftover recipes -

                Roasted Garlic Soup
                by yaahl
                I make this soup when the weather turns cold and blowy. I'm a firm believer that garlic helps keep your immune system all tuned up and that you tend to not get sick from colds and flu then.

                March 17th may be the greatest day corned beef has ever known, but the day after St. Pat's is the perfect time to mince the remains of the previous day into a hash fit to side the breakfast of kings. You know you like hash, but...

                Tips on cooking buffalo
                by wyo_rose
                Anyone got some good tips on cooking buffalo?

                With hamburger patties, one tip is to use a hamburger press to form the patties and cook on medium instead of medium high. Turn them a few times and NEVER squish the juiciness out of them.

                I've made stew with buffalo, and it...
