Mouth watering chicken tortilla soup, fire roasted bell pepper, onions, tomatoes, corn tortillas, cumin, oregano and thyme is slow simmered topped with cheese.

This mouth watering chicken tortilla soup is very creamy (no, there’s no cream in this soup) version of chicken tortilla soup comes from somewhere deep inside my wife Stella’s (so not her real name) memory. A taste so fleeting, yet so comfortably familiar that it did, decades ago, burrow into the tastebuds of her memory during a studio potluck one evening. Little did I know, or she for that matter.

Fast forward to last month, Stella enters the kitchen as I’m pouring up freshly made chicken broth, slow-simmered from the leftover carcass of last night’s roast chicken. Laying claim to the broth on the spot she told me she has a memory to recreate and let fly the story of this amazing and memorable chicken tortilla soup. A chance encounter meal that left a singular highlight still recalled fondly from nearly twenty-years ago.

In fact, the ingredients in this version of chicken tortilla soup consist of the usual list of ingredients used by virtually everyone who’s ever made chicken tortilla soup, nothing new here, except, what you do with those ingredients and that, makes the difference. Enjoy.
