Sopa De Lima (Tomato, Lime, and Tortilla Soup)
Very good soup and a lot of fun with tortilla stripes.. A little bit too sour for me, but only a little bit.. Thanks, my photo is at the top of the page..
green chili peppers
In a medium soup pot, sauté the onions and garlic in the oil until the onions are translucent.
Add the chiles, cumin, and oregano, and sauté for a few more minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes and sprinkle with a little salt.
Cover the pot and cook gently until the tomatoes begin to release their juices.
This will take longer with winter tomatoes than with summer ones.
Add the stock and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.
Add the lime juice and salt to taste.
Sever topped with crumbled tortilla chips.
Garnish with finely chopped cilantro, if desired.
