you need some cooked chicken cut into cubes. you need some celery and carrots cut very thinly. you need a couple long green chile pods roasted, peeled and diced - you can use a small can of chopped green chile you need a couple chicken boullion cubes you need some water to cover the ingredients. you need some corn tortillas. Now if you want you can add a teaspoon of sage, tarragon, chives, parsley, cilantro, garlic, any or all of these will flavor the soup better, but are not that necessary. toss everything except the tortillas into a pot and bring to boil, simmer for an hour or until the carrots are done. Cut the tortillas into quarters and toss them in for about 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with crispy tortilla chips. Ok, I haven't given you any amounts for the simple reason, you decide!! It is your soup and you get to put as much of whatever you want in it. Try not to get carried away with any one thing. All herbs you buy dried will keep for a year in your pantry!! Don't worry about using them all up. Eventually you will have a collection of herbs and spices to make anything you want without having to go buy something. I keep some herbs and spices in the freezer so they last even longer than the recommended year. They only lose flavor over time, they don't go bad. So get one each time you go to the store and you will eventually have a good collection of stuff to make your soups, stews and goulashes more flavorful.
