Mexican Deli meets heat

When winter or spring winds blow, there is something wonderful about dipping into a steaming bowl of Tortilla soup. The broth is only the beginning. Each spoonful revels tender morsels of chicken, guajillo chilies, avocado and lively cilantro.

In the America of yesteryear, Tortilla soup was relished primarily by Mexican Americans who inherited family recipes which were passed down from one generation to another.

Slowly Tortilla soup has found a place in the pantheon of American soups, and nowadays there are recipes for it, both classic and adventurous, from Latinos and non- Latinos.

This soup is hearty enough to be the centerpiece of a casual supper. As the feast of unleavened bread approaches, celebrating freedom we enjoyed it with a chipotle – stuffed matzah ball.
