Pastor Tom's Tortilla Soup
Okay, I give up! All my members keep asking for my famous tortilla soup recipe. Here it is. Muy Bueno!

16 ounce can tomatoes
1 medium onion, cut up

2 clove garlic 
4 tablespoons snipped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon sugar
8 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast cut up
2 or 3 *chipotle peppers and little adobo sauce

shredded Monterey jack cheese
avocados cut up
Tortilla chips
Sour cream

In blender combine undrained tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, and sugar. Cover and blend till nearly smooth. Put mixture into a large pot with chicken broth, chicken and chipotle peppers. Bring to boiling; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Put crunched tortilla chips in a bowl with cheese, avocados, and sour cream (omit if desired) . Ladle soup over; serve immediately. Makes 8 or 10 servings.

* I'm sure people are wondering what is a chipolte pepper. It is a smoked jalapeño. It is usually found in adobo sauce. Do not think the soup will taste good without it. It is the reason why my soup recipe is so good. If you can't find chipolte peppers in your store click here to find the brand I use. By the way this is an original recipe. Tell me what you think.

"Thank you for the wonderful tortilla soup recipe. It is easy, fool proof and delicious every time! I actually left the cilantro out and added it after the soup was cooked -- I prefer it uncooked and just warmed in the soup... FANTASTIC I can't wait to try your other recipes."

"I found this site last year and have been making the soup ever since. At least 2x a month in the beginning. I tweak it a bit by adding lime and corn. I add the peppers with the other ingredients and puree it instead of adding it to the soup alone. I think it tastes better that way. But it's a great recipe! My ex-mother in law had a Mexican restaurant and her Tortilla Soup was no where near this. Nope, yours is so much tastier."

"Since our husbands were going away to a men's retreat for the weekend I invited my girlfriends over for some Tortilla soup and movies. I hated the lengthy recipe I had and chose to "look" around and found yours. What a blessing! Everyone loved it and I have had to forward the recipe on to everyone who has tried it! When the men returned from their amazing retreat they demanded a repeat dinner! Thanks and keep up the great work!"

"I tried this recipe because it had such high praise. ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! Best soup EVER! Just a variation: I took the chilies themselves out as soon as I thought it was too spicy (I tasted one too many times). Also, I took the chicken mixture, and blended it in a food processor to make shredded chicken instead of the chunks and add some more thickness. SOOOOOOO INCREDIBLY GOOD. I printed the page out and taped it to my cookbook!"
Gwyn S

"Being a Mexican, I usually don't agree with the "American-Way" of cooking Mexican Food, however, I have to admit that this soup is just delicious! I have made it three times and of course, I eat mine with lots of chipotle! My husband is an American and he is happy with the recipe amount."

"Okay. I tried your soup , and the first time I was not pleased with it, but that was my fault: I put in green chilies because I had a hard time finding chipolte peppers at any of the 5 stores I went to. I was at Wal-Mart where I did not expect to find them and to my surprise they had them. I tried it a second time and will continue making this soup; it tasted great."

"My husband and I just finished two bowls each of your delicious tortilla soup recipe, and it was fantastic! Your website is great and it's content sparked some great dinner conversation."

"I have tried tortilla soups in fancy restaurants and I thought that was best soup I ever had but praise God I found your wonderful recipe. Yesterday I prepared it for my husband who is half German and half Norwegian. We both love Mexican food and what a surprise! Your recipe is the best in the WORLD!"
Gladys M. Lein

"I'm writing from the UK where chipolte peppers are hard to come by. Fortunately, I had some frozen away and when I followed your recipe I realised what made a tortilla soup I had in San Diego a few years ago so great - that's my missing taste. Thanks for your inspiration and best wishes."

"Wow, your tortilla soup was the hit of my Christmas Dinner. It is wonderful--and if possible--even better the second day! When my boyfriend made a "trial run" of the recipe before Christmas, he didn't follow the recipe carefully (must be like asking directions) and added the entire can of peppers and adobo sauce.  HOT!!!!!  We ate every last bite, but had smoke and flames coming out of our ears and mouths each time! Thanks for a great recipe!"
Ann Weaver

"You can add my vote. It is the best tortilla soup I've ever had, and so simple!

"I made this for my family last night and they loved it. Thank you for sharing. It is a good thing when your 8 year old says, "This is a keeper Mom.""
Kate Aranda

"Thank you so much, I made it and it is without a doubt the best soup we have ever had."
Darren Duff

"I made the tortilla soup as surprise gift for my sister at her baby shower. Believe me! she didn't want anybody to see or taste it, she wanted it all for herself! Everybody who ate the soup really wanted the recipe too. You were right! I tasted the soup without the chipolte peppers and it is so much better with them. It gives it an extra "Kick".  I burned my mouth so bad trying the chipolte pepper! Extremely HOT! I think your soup stole the show."
Tamsen Mayo

"I made your soup this weekend and I must say that it was THE BEST tortilla soup I have ever had and being raised in Texas I have had plenty! I think you are exactly right about the Chipotle peppers, they absolutely do make it! At any rate thanks for taking the time to post it on the Web."
God Bless,
Brent McMillan
