Holy Mole Chicken Pozole

A gourmet version of tortilla soup, this rustic version is actually thickened with finely diced pieces of corn tortilla that break down as the stew simmers. It’s also a great way to utilize leftover chicken, which makes it a standard on my rotation of Soupe du Jour in my restaurant. There’s always leftover chicken laying around!

  Rotisserie chicken 1 , shredded off the bone
  Chicken stock 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Onion 1 , diced
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm)
  Green bell 1 , diced

  Oregano 1 Tablespoon
  Corn tortilla 5 , finely minced
  Red pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon

In a large stock pot over a medium-high heat, bring the shredded chicken, stock, onion, garlic, bell pepper, and celery to a gentle simmer. Once simmering, add all of the other ingredients except for salt, pepper, and cilantro.
Once the tortilla has begun to break down and thicken the stew (about 30 minutes), season to your tastes with salt and pepper. Garnish with the chopped cilantro.
