Tortilla Soup Splendida
2 chicken breasts, bone in, skin on
8 cups chicken stock
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1 inch avacado cut chunks
10 corn tortillas, cut into thin slices
Once the oil is hot stir in the onions and tomatos and cook until the onions just begin to become translucent.
Place a small handful of tortilla strips into the oil. Don't crowd the strips, they should have room to move around in the oil. After 1 - 2 minutes turn strips over using tongs.
Add fresh cilantro.
This is a satisfying, light soup which can be customized to fit everyones tastes. Cooking the chicken breasts in the broth enhances the flavor splendidly! This is a great course to expand for a crowd.
