Here we go with my version of Emeril’s Tortilla Soup.
I stick to the original recipe…
EXCEPT for the following:
- I use original Emeril’s Essence instead of the Bayou Blast to dust the tortilla strips.
- I leave off the avocado and cilantro.
Yes, I know those might seem integral to the recipe, but trust me; it still tastes super good.
- I also opt for the green pepper.
- And sometimes – like tonight – I dusted scooper chips instead of tortilla strips.
Two things you shouldn’t leave out are the dusted chips/strips and the chipotle crema. Both add so much flavor to the soup, it wouldn’t be the same without them. Enjoy!
