The creaminess of this dairy-free, gluten-free dish comes from blending corn tortillas right into the soup.



Ingredients

Directions

Heat oil in a heavy stockpot over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute for 5 min. Stir in green chile powder, tamari, cumin, salt, oregano and pepper and cook for another 2 min. Stir in broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, bell pepper, jalapeño pepper and hickory smoke flavoring. Cover and bring to a simmer over high heat. Lower heat to medium-low and continue cooking for 15 min. Add tortilla pieces and continue cooking until tortillas start to fall apart, about 5 to 10 min. Using an immersion or blender or food processor, puree soup until smooth and serve warm.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with tortilla strips, cubed avocado pieces and sour cream. Will keep for 2 days in the refrigerator.

6 to 8 servings

I forgot to mention that I did have to reduce the oil from one cup to two tablespoons for my personal health situation.

Good stuff. The spices are well balanced and the soup is very satisfying. It's like a Southwest version of cream of tomato. Perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich. Blending the tortillas is a very tasty twist. Everyone should own an immersion blender. (If the house catches on fire I'm grabbing mine on the way out.)
