The base for chicken tortilla soup is a mixture of peppers, onions, garlic, chicken stock, enchilada sauce and Mexican seasonings. Hominy, tomatoes and chicken are added, and it’s all topped with cheese, onions, cilantro, lime and fresh fried tortilla strips. Avocados and jalapeños would go great as well. And, for a creamier soup, stir in a dollop of sour cream.

The corn skewers can be roasted, broiled or grilled before getting all dressed up. Use Polar baby corn or another brand that you know doesn’t smell like a barnyard, or even fresh if you can get it!
