Bonus Recipe: Tortilla Soup!
OK, truth be told, I've never had tortilla soup, nor have I ever seen a recipe for it (until today). The other day I made pork enchiladas, and I had some leftover filling, and I had a brainstorm that it would be the basis for a great soup.
When I started thinking about the spices I would use, I realized that it was most likely a form of Tortilla Soup (I thought of using corn tortillas as the thickener). And so I arrived at my recipe.
It's really delicious (as Ted will attest -- I saw him eat three bowls!).
After developing the recipe, I decided to check out "real" tortilla soup recipes on the Web, and I discovered that mine is fairly similar. So I was on the right track.

Oh, a side note: If you don't eat pork, you can use chicken. I recommend using thighs because I like their texture and I think they're more flavorful. But hey, it's up to you!
As Julia would say, "Bon appetit!"
