Haha, and that's why I'm not over thinking it. Because it's just too crazy to be real.

That could only happen in Russia.

we had a cooking thread last season. didn't go so well.

Do you put actual tortillas torn up in your base to thicken it?

i thought i remembered there being a cooking thread.

i didnt, it just calls for crushed tortilla chips being sprinkled on the soup after its done to add some crunch. that plus some grated romano cheese and a dollop of sour cream should do the trick. it already smells ****ing delicious! my gf has the flu so this is just a nice little surprise for her when she comes home from work.

heres the recipe http://thechiclife.com/2012/04/slow-...up-recipe.html

i must have searched for at least 3 hours this morning to find the perfect soup for this cold ass day.

That sounds great. My wife and I love tortilla soup and have tried several recipes with none coming out near enough to our favorite local pub's version which has a broth base but has just a little more thickness to it along with some cheese melted in rather than topped with it. I read a few recipes for it that included taking 1 or 2 flour tortillas and shredding them into little pieces as you start the crock pot going as they break down and thicken the soup. We're trying that next time.

Also, rather than frying up tortillas for strip to top we've found that BBQ Fritos work fabulously! The wife cannot stand onions so I dice some green onion and top mine with that as well as cilantro. Smells outstanding that way (if you dig onions). I also put in twice as much cumin powder in as they call for but it is one of my favorite spices.

Let me know how it turns out.

dammit man youve got me salivating!!

woah, twice as much cumin? I may actually have to add some more in. one tsp just isnt enough. and i was thinking about whisking just over a tablespoon of cornstarch in a 4th cup of water and adding that to the crock pot a half hour before its done. tell me if you think that's reasonable.

dude, i LOVEE onions. the recipe called for a cup, i did 2 cups. you can NEVER have enough onions.

cornstarch works fine - go for it but don't go too far with it or you end up with tortilla gravy.

- I always use more broth to add in with cornstarch (make sure it's cold when you mix) no lumps, no dilution of flavor.

Crap, you're right. I should have saved a half cup of broth for the cornstarch. Oh well, we live and we learn haha.

And thank you for the cold water tip. I totally would have used warm if not hot water.

Have you ever tried making slow cooker pork chops with 2 cans of cream of chicken, one can of cream of mushroom and a packet of ranch dressing mix?? If not I encourage you to try it. It's my absolute favorite meal to make in the crock pot. Serve over handmade garlic mashes potatoes, with grilled or broiled asparagus on the side. It's heaven man!!

No, but I do know the same trick using 1/2 your favorite BBQ sauce and 1/2 water or beef stock (pork stock so hard to find here) along with 1/2 sweet onion. You then can fork shred the chops and make sammiches or serve with your favorite side. I'll have to try your version.

For a quick side, get a box of instant potato buds, make like directions but use whole milk in all places rather than water. When they're finished, add in extra butter, some cream cheese (about 1/2 cup) and shredded cheese (cheddar or your personal favorite). I also stir in chopped green onion. De-lish. rachelray.jpg

My favorite asparagus is marinate in olive oil with lemon pepper liberally applied. Grill to slightly tender/charred.

Dude, you're killing me. That looks like it would be amazing. Why didn't you let me know about this recipe oh..like 6 hours ago!!! Well, I know what im making for sunday dinner . Is lemon pepper available at stop & shop/shoprite? I don't think i've seen it there before, and that's coming from a guy who loves his spices.

What's wrong with a guy cooking? I like to cook and I'm pretty good at it. You keep on keeping on, no matter what anyone tells you.

That's BS. I love to cook, and can pretty much make anything. Cheesecake, pizza, french onion soup, you name it. It's very therapeutic.

I just don't understand why it plays during hockey games so much... Are we the target demographic for it?

It was nonexistent for the better part of summer and throughout the lockout.

It's sole purpose is to drive us mad. Probably at the hands of MLS.
