The moment it became cold, I began to crave soup. Isn’t soup just the ultimate in perfect cold weather comfort food? I like to make a big batch of soup and then eat it repeatedly over the course of the week. I live alone, and sometimes eating leftovers several nights in a row gets tiring, but I almost never feel that way with soup. I can eat it for a week straight and still be satisfied, if it’s a good one.
And this Chicken Tortilla Soup, which I found on Eat Live Run, is definitely a good one. I omitted the jalapeno pepper (because I’m afraid of spiciness), but otherwise followed the recipe to a tee. I also consulted this tutorial for roasting the poblano pepper, as I had never worked with poblano before. Other than that, the recipe was a breeze!
