Reviewed Classic Tortilla Soup

Tuesday, Jan 7, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this once last year and was planning on making this tonight, then got some disheartening news and didn't feel like cooking at all. I had all the ingredients, though, and went on with it. I am so glad I did... this really is comfort food... the avacado and crema make it. Also added half a shredded chicken breast. Chicken Tortilla Soup for...

I wanted to like this. If you love lima beans there is so much more that you can do than "accent it" with lemon zest/juice.

Thanksgiving dinner was very good... and this was the star of the show. I had planned on adding celery and forgot to-- but it was delicious without it. It was the first leftover I attacked.

"I am so glad I decided to make this tonight... great as 'brinner! This was much lighter than I thought it was going to be and much more moist. The crisp tortilla strips gave this a great texture, too. I'm looking forward to the new cookbook. This one's going into my rotation."

"This is so close to being a 5 for me....but, like others have said, it's just missing a little something. I skipped the orange zest and added some bacon and I was ready to review it as a 3... but the next day I added some more salt and pepper to the leftovers and pigged out! I like it a lot.... I don't love it yet. I want to keep checking back "

"I planned on making a different pulled pork recipe when I saw this episode. I wasn't sure if this casserole would be overkill. It was fantastic! So glad I went for it.... this dish was so much better than anything else in the meal. I can't wait to try Trisha's pulled pork."

Sunday, Jun 9, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"Absolutely loved this! Based on others' reviews I doubled the vegetable and the chipotle. I used a combination of thighs and breasts (breasts divided into thirds)... both of which I browned prior to putting in the slow cooker. I tasted the rice while the chicken was cooking and was unimpressed...and I was bracing myself for diappointment. The fi"

"First experience with Kale... and I really liked this. I'm going to try washing the kale in hot water to try and soften it up a little next time."

Sunday, Feb 17, 2013 on Cooking Channel

"I am not sure what I was expecting, but I loved this. My chops were not as thick as I wanted and I was not able to put as much garlic inside. I also substituted a few dashes of gin for the juniper berries. I have only been cooking a few years and I am just floored when something comes out this good. This will be one of my "Go To's""

"Very simple... and outstanding. I have tried something similar by another Food Network chef with southwest spicing and the ingredients just got in the way. This recipe does not mess with a good thing. Loved it."

Thursday, Aug 16, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"These were really tasty and I'll be adding this recipe to my "go to" list. There was no heat at all, though, so I'll be adjusting that to my taste next time... maybe leaving some of the Jalapeno seeding or finding something else to zest it up. I made half with corn tortillas and half with flour... didn't matter to me, they both rocked."

Saturday, May 19, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I have always hated the idea of "now toss in a packet of taco seasoning..." That never seemed like cooking to me. This was wonderful! I didn't see the complaints about the salt until after I made the Potion, so I just ommitted the salt later. Next time I'll only do half the salt in the Potion and salt the sirloin, as two teaspoons were just fi"
