If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you are probably asking yourself by now if I’m capable of cooking without cilantro. Approximately… no. I have a serious problem, actually. Send help. I can’t be in the produce section of the store without buying a single bunch of cilantro. We all have our little lists of things we buy out of habit every time we visit the grocery store. You know the ones. Admit it. Yours may not include cilantro, but you have your secret little list.
I’ve been making this handy dandy Chicken Tortilla Soup for about a decade now. It’s a keeper. The corn tortillas act as both a flavoring and a thickener in this amazing onion-garlic-tomato-cumin-cilantro-lime broth. It comes together in under an hour total, but it takes like it’s been on the stove for hours.
