White Corn Tortilla Soup


California Pizza Kitchen Sedona White Corn Tortilla Soup
Copycat Recipe

Soup
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 small corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch squares
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced jalapeno pepper
1 pound white corn kernels (2 cups)
1 1/2 pounds chopped ripe tomatoes
1/3 cup tomato paste
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cups water
1 quart chicken stock
.
Garnishes
24 blue corn tortilla chips
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Over medium-high heat, fry tortilla squares in olive oil until they begin to crisp and turn a golden yellow.
Add garlic, onion and jalapeno; cook 1 to 2 minutes, until onion becomes translucent. Add half the corn along with all other ingredients (except garnishes), reserving other half of corn to be added at the end. Bring the soup to a low, even boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat. Use a hand-held propeller blade processor to process in batches to the consistency of a course puree. You can also process in batches in a blender. Return the soup to the burner and add the reserved corn. Bring the soup to a boil once again being extremely careful to avoid scorching or burning the soup. To serve, garnish with blue corn tortilla chips, cilantro and sharp Cheddar cheese.
