Summer Corn Tortilla Soup
Cook onion and garlic in hot oil in a 4-quart pot for about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in corn, tomatoes, squash, beans, and pork loin. Cook and stir until heated through. Chop two of the corn tortillas. Stir the chopped tortillas, broth, chili powder, and cumin into the mixture in pot. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes or until the tortillas are dissolved and the meat is done. Stir in cilantro.Advertisement
Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Place the remaining two tortillas on a baking sheet. Coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown, turning once halfway through broiling time. Using a long knife, cut the tortillas into thin strips. While still warm, gently ruffle the strips to create wavy tortilla strips. Carefully place on a paper towel; cool.
To serve, spoon soup into serving bowls. Top with tortilla strips and avocado slices.
