How to make it

  • Puree the beans in a blender or food processor with a little broth. Puree tomatoes, onion, and garlic in same manner. Add to the bean mixture. Add remaining broth. Let simmer 20 minutes. Stem the chiles and remove seeds, then tear into several pieces. Toast them on a griddle on both sides for a few minutes. Cut the tortillas into strips and fry in the corn oil until crisp. To assemble, place a few strips of tortillas in a soup bowl, add broth. Top with a piece of chile, some cheese, and a dollop of crème fraiche.

    I had this at several garage and fancy eating establishments in Morelia and fell in love with it. I bought the packaged mix at one establishment, but once home it was horrible. I hope this is my beloved soup! How do you cook your beans? I am in Texas and we cook them with lots of pork fat, chili powder, etc and I did not pick up on those tastes in the soup. Thanks!
