You can also garnish this flavorful soup with a dollop of sour cream, tomatillo salsa or a spoonful of black beans. Instead of queso fresco, use shredded Monterey jack cheese. For a complete meal, accompany the soup with a chopped romaine lettuce salad with a chili-lime vinaigrette.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. corn oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped chipotle chilies in adobo
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes with juices
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded roast pork
  • 4 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 1 small avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and
      finely diced
  • 1 cup broken tortilla chips
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Directions:

Make the soup base
In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chili, broth and tomatoes, then stir in the pork. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover partially and simmer for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.

Finish the soup
Stir 2 Tbs. of the cilantro into the soup. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with the remaining 2 Tbs. cilantro and the cheese, avocado and tortilla chips. Accompany with the lime wedges. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Soup that you can easily adapt Great soup recipe. Fast enough for a week night, and easy to adapt to additional ingredients. I added chopped squash, and frozen corn and peas, to up the veggie content and make it a full meal. Very colourful as a result; I wish I'd taken a photo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and flavourful Great recipe, full of flavor. I made two small changes: I used some Arrabbiata sauce that I had leftover, instead of the chopped tomatoes and also sautéed some cubed pork with the onions and garlic, instead of the shredded pork, since it was what I had on hand. Will definitely make this soup again.
