Tortilla Soup

Since we are trolling for recipes that say, "take 4 ripe tomatoes. . . . ." I thought of my old tortilla soup recipe which I have served to countless Europeans who have all thought it excellent.

I found a similiar recipe on the web, just change the canned tomatoes to 4 ripe tomatoes and you're in business. Don't cheat and skip the cilantro. We love all the toppings. We love sitting with a box of Kleenex on the table because I left part of the pith and seeds in the jalapeno.

Live bravely. Soup is good food.
The world's best torilla soup is at the Stanford Court Hotel (see Blog photo) in San Francisco, but it's big time cheaper to eat this recipe. On the other hand, the Stanford Court is a lovely spot to eat lunch, and if you have some ready cash or credit, why not treat yourself to a bowl of this heavenly soup?
