Tortilla Soup, And Home Made Hamburger Buns..


Monday, I took the left-over roast chicken, and the broth I had made from the carcass created by Sunday's meal- and went hunting for something new to do with these treats... Tortilla Soup won the contest! Many versions of this dish, but this is what I did... Home-made chix broth, tomato paste, corn, chopped onion, jalapeno chiles, chopped, red salsa, chunky style, chili powder, garlic, cumin, Mex oregano... Put in a Crock pot on low for 6 hrs... Tortilla chips and shredded cheese as a garnish- I will make this again!
I made home made hamburger buns- came out the size of a plate! Tasty, but huge.. no picture of it, but imagine a small Italian bread loaf...

Snow niece- It really was pretty tasty!

LiLu said...

Homemade hamburger buns?? Badass!

G-Man said...

Yeah....I have much better luck with cooking than baking.
Grrrrrr

Akelamalu said...

That sounds really tasty. We had Lamb Hotpot on Monday made from the leftover Lamb joint we had for dinner on Sunday. One of MWM's favourites. :)

Scarlet said...

Again, I arrive hungry and leave starving. I think I have a love/hate relationship with your blog.

It would help if you started leaving samples. :)

I know I'm making several dozen burger and dog buns this weekend, although probably not a full gross. It's a lot of work, but you are right; they are awesome! Now, send over some of that taco soup, please!

buffalodick said...

Lilu- Welcome to the blog!
G-man- I do do one without thought, and the other I have to measure!
Ake- I've got a leg of lamb, and I amm going to smoke it soon!
Scarlet- Don't ever leave me! I enjoy your posts, and your comments!
Marjie-I know now to control size! Man, are they better, or what? The soup is a keeper!

Tortilla soup is absolutely one of my favorite soups. Extra cheesy for me.

doggybloggy said...

cheesey for me too - thats a good soup to come home to...lets check out those buns (not how I wanted it to sound) and the burger too - in proportion...just for kicks!

buffalodick said...

Pink- soup was a pleasant surprise- really flovor loaded!
DogB- Didn't need cheese, but it didn't hurt either! Buns were UFO size- Open face cheese and bacon on them tonight!

Kate said...

My Chicken Tortilla soup is made primarily from cans, but it rocks.

Donna-FFW said...

who is doggy kidding.. he wanted it to sound like that;).. I like my buns toasted. I didnt mean it to sound like that..Tortilla soup sounds delish!

Yummy! My mind is on picnic food for the weekend and what to do with my new ovens!!!

I gave you a link today for fun due to the new ovens.

Belle said...

God I missed your cooking Buff.

buffalodick said...

Kate- I can see now how many ways this could be made, and come out great!
Donna- You would have liked the broiled buns, with Havarti cheese, mushroom, and bacon we had last night!
Hit40- I'll be over in a bit!
Belle- Well, I just plain missed you..Glad you're back!

Katherine Aucoin said...

This is one of my favorite soups! I'm going to take a stab at making hamburger buns.

TavoLini said...

I love the tortilla soup--very smart!

Homemade hamburger buns--so, besides being large, how were they? Every time I make them they tend to turn out too hard. Jawbreaker burger buns, if you will ;)

Mona said...

Tortilla soup??? That is something new to me!!!

K said...

The soup looks fabulous.

We're having tacos tonight - not quite as exciting, but I love Mexician.

buffalodick said...

Katherine-Buns were easy- just huge!
Lini- Soft as anything!- just big!
Mona- Never made it, but will make it again!
K- same flavors, just soupier!~

Chris said...

The soup sounds great and easy.

A plate sized bun? What, you going to make one of those 6lb burgers? ;)

Tanya Kristine said...

haven't seen you in a while BD....so i thought i'd catch up. might i suggest you not use the word 'carcass'?

buffalodick said...

Chris- Soup was a pleasant surprise! Burger bun could have handled a 2lb. burger, no sweat! Oops!
Tanya- Good to hear from you! You should have seen the chicken corpse before we ate it... HeeHeeHee..

Chef E said...

You had me at tortilla soup...buns, cannot wait to see yours, yeah I meant to say that!

Heff said...

Nothing builds an appetite like the term "carcass" !

starbender said...

The size of a plate? WoW- imagine the burger you would need for that?
My whole family would have 2 split it, cuz I couldn't eat it by myself.

The Tortilla Soup sounds interesting, I have never even heard of it. I will have to try it one day--soon.

Have a great Holiday weekend!

buffalodick said...

Chef- Soup great, buns were as big as my own fat ass!
Hef- Tanya is a vegetarian I never miss a swipe at! LOve her dearly, though...
Star- smaller, they would have been buns, bigger they would have been loaves! Soup is a keeper!

MarmiteToasty said...

buffalodick said...

Marmy- I'm a lot of things, but sane ain't one of them!
Angela- It is in my next post- tretty easy!

CDB said...

Wow, I'm fascinated. Homemade BUNS?
And I'm assuming that's not with a bread maker!!
