"In using the spoon, he holds it in his right hand like the fork. In eating cereal or dessert, he may be allowed to dip the bowl of the spoon toward him and eat from the end, but in eating soup he must dip his spoon away from him—turning the outer rim of the bowl down as he does so—fill the bowl not more than three-quarters full and sip it, without noise, out of the side (not the end) of the bowl." -Emily Post, Behaviorist
This soup has it all. Great Southwestern spices, savory chicken, veggies and sweet corn flavor. For a lot of folks this won't be as spicy as they would like it (here's the GERD-Friendly Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe). The spices are milder and the onions have cooked for a long time, making the soup sweet and not spicy.
If you want yours spicier, add a bit of cayenne pepper when you add the other spices. If there are those in your family who don't like spicy food, follow the recipe and put some hot sauce on the table for those who want some.
You can use store bought tortilla chips for this recipe but these Baked Tortilla Chips are great. When you make your own you get better tasting chips and can control the flavor and the amount of added salt.
