A soup with crispy tortillas
This is my recipe for a soup that is very popular in Mexico.
If you have ever wondered what to do with some leftover tortillas that
are in your refrigerator, then read this recipe.
If you haven't wondered, then do it with fresh tortillas.
- 12 corn tortillas
- 2 cups tomato sauce
(2 standard cans)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- chopped mozzarella cheese
- crushed pork rinds
- chopped avocado
- oil for frying
Cut the tortillas into strips (about
Fry the tortillas in the oil until golden brown and crispy. Dry them
in a paper towel and add a little salt.
To make the soup: In a medium kettle sautae the onions in a bit of
oil until they become translucent. Mix
of water with the tomato sauce
and bring to a boil. Set aside. Add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve: pour the soup into 4 soup bowls. Put some tortilla strips in
each bowl. Bring them to the table along with the cheese, pork rinds,
and avocado. Each person adds the rest to his/her soup to their taste.
You can add some tabasco sauce to the soup to make it hot or use any
cheese that will melt when added to the soup.
Pork rinds are a typical Mexican snack that is sold in many
supermarkets in bulk or in the snack area.
no need to measure.
