Peak season is here in Aspen, and while the winter brings snow to the mountains, it also makes warm meals even more popular. A healthy and hearty option is to serve a Tex-Mex inspired chicken tortilla soup. This recipe makes four portions and it great for providing warmth with a kick of heat from jalapenos.

  • ¼ cup (60 g) fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) chipotle puree
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) chili powder
  • Salt, as needed
  • Pepper, as needed
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1  avocado
  • 3 corn tortillas, cut into strips and fried
  • ½ (120 g) cup Monterrey cheese, shredded
  • 4 lime wedges

Method:

  • In a large sauce pan, heat the oil.
  • Add onions and garlic. Cook for two minutes.
  • Add jalapenos, tomatoes, chipotle puree and chili powder. Cook for another minute.
