This is actually a recipe I got from "Cooking with Grad Students" but I made some adjustments, and I've got some suggestions for similar and easier recipes, too (in a seperate post).

See it here (Delicious looking photo).

Here's the original recipe:

This stuff was pretty tasty, unlike my first attempt with a different recipe, which was a disaster. After that catastrophe, I shied away from such recipes. But I had some wonderful tortilla soup somewhere, and decided to try again. And I found this recipe, which was also much easier than the first. And when I decided to make it the other day, I realized I had all the ingredients already! I didn't have to go buy anything. That was nice. I even had my own chicken stock that I'd made from the left overs of a roast chicken dinner. It was a nice touch. But an unnecessary one, so don't worry about that.

Eventually I'll get around to posting my roast chicken dinner recipes, and a little thing on making chicken stock. It's a simple thing, and you can find directions for it practically in any cookbook ever, but I hate when sites reference something without telling you how it's made. Or at least, how I make it. And so I will....but later. Anyway, on to the soup!

A tasty, filling, and above all, easy, vegetarian dish. I adapted from something George, the ED of <a href="http://www.projectmana.org/">Project MANA</a> made. His salsa was 10,000 times better though. George would often cook food on Fridays and share with the building.

This dish is fairly easy to make, but can seem quite sophisticated. It is also a good thing to serve for dinner if you've got a lot of people coming over, and not the time or resources to go for a full fancy meal. It's also vegetarian, so it's good for a crowd. I will admit to shamelessly stealing this recipe from a restaurant in st andrews and adapting it to suit me. Of course, the recipe-stealing was all guesswork on my part, so maybe I can get away with "inspired by"?  Anyway, here it is. The secret is a *ton* of ground black pepper.
