Tomato, Lime, & Tortilla Soup
From: Alison Green

This is one of the best soups I've ever had!

  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 4 large cloves garlic, pressed
  • 3 Tb. vegetable oil
  • 1-2 minced chiles (1 inch long)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 3-1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • salt
  • tortilla chips, crumbled
  • chopped fresh cilantro
In medium pot, saute onions and garlic in oil.
Add chiles, cumin, and oregano and saute a few minutes.
Add tomatoes.
Sprinkle tomatoes with salt--make sure you get a light covering of salt over all the tomatoes, since this releases their juice.
Cover, cook gently until tomatoes begin to release juices.
Stir occasionally.
Add stock and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
Add lime juice and salt to taste.
Serve topped with tortilla chips and cilantro.
