the garlic cloves, onion and tomatoes on a pan until the skin is
burned, rotating them in the meantime. Peel the tomatoes, remove their
hard parts and blend them with the onion and garlic plus 1/4 cup of
chicken stock. On one spoon of oil, fry the puree for 2 minutes. Lower
the heat and cook for another 5 minutes, until the puree get thicker
or changes in colour. Add the remainder chicken stock and epazote.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to boil and cook at medium heat
for 15 minutes. Cut the tortillas in halves, and then each half in
thin strips. Add 1cm of oil in a small pan. When it is hot, add the
strips --few at a time-- and fry them for 3 minutes or until they are
golden, flipping them once. Take out and remove excess oil. (It is
important that the tortillas are dry, if you can not leave them drying
the day before, put them in your oven at 120 Celsius for one hour).
Cut the chiles in rings of 1cm and remove the seeds. Fry them in oil
for one minute or until crunchy. Five minutes before serving, heat the
soup, add the fried tortillas. Decorate each bowl with chile rings and
avocado. Add cheese. Leave rest of avocado, chiles, cream and limes on
the table for extra garnish. CHILE-HEADS DIGEST V2 #293 From the
