Tortilla Soup (Sopa Azteca)

Bowl of tortilla soup with tortilla strips, avocado, cilantro, sour cream and lime

Sopa azteca (tortilla soup) is the classic, comforting something-from-nothing meal. Leftover tortillas are sliced and fried into crispy strips that melt into a rich, tomato-y chicken broth flavored with smoky chile pasilla and fresh epazote, if you can find it. Shredded leftover or rotisserie chicken makes this even quicker to throw together. The garnishes are up to you: we keep it simple with cubed avocado, queso fresco, crema, and a very generous squeeze of lime (okay, cilantro if you've got it on hand).
