Smoky Shrimp, Hominy and
Tortilla Soup

Bon Appétit November 2000

Bon Appetit One Year Subscription 

Makes 10 servings

 The tortilla strips need to dry overnight,
so begin making this one day

Four 5-inch-diameter corn tortillas,
halved, cut into thin strips

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion  
1 cup finely chopped carrot  
1/2 cup finely chopped celery  
6 garlic cloves, minced  
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano  
7 cups canned low-salt chicken broth
[or homemade chicken stock]
Two 15-ounce cans golden
hominy, drained  
1/3 cup canned crushed tomatoes
with added purée  
2 teaspoons chopped canned
chipotle chilies*  
1 pound uncooked small shrimp,
peeled, deveined  
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro  
Lime wedges

Spread corn tortilla strips in single layer on paper towel. Let tortilla strips
stand at room temperature overnight to dry.
Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add chopped onion, chopped carrot, chopped celery, minced garlic and dried oregano. Sauté
until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Add chicken broth,
golden hominy, crushed tomatoes and chipotle chilies; bring to simmer.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt
and pepper. (Soup can be prepared 3 days ahead. Cool slightly. Re-
frigerate soup uncovered until cold, then cover soup and refrigerate.)
Bring soup to simmer over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook until
opaque in center, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Stir in chopped
fresh cilantro. Divide soup among 10 soup bowls. Top soup with dried
tortilla strips, dividing equally.
Serve soup, passing lime wedges separately.

*Chipotle chilies canned in a spicy tomato sauce, sometimes
called adobo,
are available at Latin American markets, specialty
foods stores and some supermarkets.
