    This is a simple soup, but it s soooo delicious! The spicy poblanos and sweet corn are perfect together. I ll be making this often. Thanks! I watched a show where you took corn tortillas and made chips of them and then baked them. A sauce was made in the blender from using tomatillos and some other ingredients. I looked on your list of recipes, and could not find this one. I forget the name of it, but thought it would be a very good way to use corn tortillas that my son left at my house. It could had been a soup, however, I don t recall. Could you please email me this recipe? thanks alot.
