GLOW Midweek Recipe: Tortilla Soup

GLOW Midweek Recipe: Tortilla Soup

Our recommended recipe this week is a spicy and hearty soup made chunky by the chicken and avocado and slightly thickened by tortillas.

Have a hearty serving!

• 6 tablespoons Cooking Oil
• 8 6-inch Corn Tortillas, halved and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch strips
• 1 Onion, chopped
• 4 large cloves Garlic, smashed
• 1 tablespoon Paprika
• 2 teaspoons ground Cumin
• 1 teaspoon ground Coriander
• 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
• 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne
• 1 1/2 quarts canned Low-Sodium Chicken Broth or Homemade Stock
• 3 cups canned Crushed Tomatoes in thick puree (one 28-ounce can)
• 2 Bay Leaves
• 2 1/2 teaspoons Salt
• 1/4 cup lightly-packed Cilantro Leaves + 3 Tbsp. chopped Cilantro (optional)
• 1 3/4 pounds boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
• 1 Avocado, cut into 1/2-inch dice
• 1/4 pound Cheddar, grated
• Lime Wedges, for serving

In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Add half the tortilla strips and cook, stirring, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining tortilla strips.

Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion, garlic, and spices; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, bay leaves, salt, cilantro leaves, if using, and one-third of the tortilla strips. Bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes; remove the bay leaves.

In a blender, puree the soup in batches; pour it back into the pot. Add the chicken, bring the soup back to a simmer, and simmer until just cooked through, about 1 minute. Stir in the avocado.

To serve, put the remaining tortilla strips in bowls, top with the cheese, and pour in the soup. Sprinkle with the chopped cilantro, if using, and serve with the lime wedges.
