Countdown to 2012: Day 28. Recipe Wednesday: Tortilla Soup

Servings: 3


  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 6 c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 med. flour tortillas
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • oil for sautéing


  1. Chop the onion and garlic.  Sauté until the onion is translucent and the garlic lightly browned.
  2. Combine the onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, and chicken broth in a large pot.  Simmer until the onions are tender.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the tortillas and cut into strips.
  4. When the soup is ready, split into bows.  Cover soup with toasted tortilla strips and cheddar cheese.  Serve.

I actually haven’t made this soup in a while, but now that I’ve dug up the recipe I’ll have to try it again.  I found this recipe shortly after returning home from Arizona, where tortilla soup was a staple on many menus.  It’s a quick, easy soup to whip up after work and this recipe is nicely spiced without being spicy.
