1.5 cups of chicken broth
1 corn tortilla, cut in quarters, then in thin strips
1/2 oz soft cheese. grated or cut in small dice
1 ancho chile, cut in thin strips
Blend for 2-3 minutes to get the soup as smooth as possible. If you want a velvety-smooth soup, pass it through a food mill or a chinois strainer (or both, with the finest mesh last). Return it to the pan and warm the soup.
While the soup is warming, cut the tortilla into thin strips. Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray (or a thin film of olive oil). Fry the tortilla strips until crispy. Toward the end of the cooking time, add the ancho chile strips.
Serve soup with cheese, tortilla strips, and chiles to garnish.
Makes about 4 1-cup servings.
