the weekend is over...it's been too short to relax and to get some rest. i spent all saturday cooking...i roasted a chicken, prepared one of my favorite mexican soups and baked vanilla and coconut cookies...
i think, that anywhere in mexico, you can get a good tortilla soup...it is simply delicious...so many different flavors come together to create a perfect soup...here is my recipe:
2 liters of chicken broth
1 garlic clove
100 g of panela cheese
4 spoons of sour cream
12 corn tortillas
1 chile pasilla
epazote (dry or fresh)
i have boiled some water and poured it over the tomatoes...that way i could easily peel off the skin...
i finely chopped the onion and garlic.
in a frying pan, i heated a spoon of oil, parted the peeled tomatoes in half, added the onion and garlic and cooked for about 5 minutes.
after that it's time to add two biiiiiiiig spoons of chicken broth and cook it for another 10 minutes or until it looks like this...
then i mixed it and got a smooth beautifully smelling tomato mixture.
and the soup was almost done. i just poured the tomatoes in the rest of the chicken broth, flavored it with salt, pepper and epazote and left it to boil. meanwhile i prepared the garnishes.
fried them and left on a paper towel to get rid of the extra oil
i did the same thing with the chile...
while it was frying, i cut the avocado and cheese into cubes and the soup was ready...
buen provecho :)
