Magnolia Cafe Chicken Tortilla Soup

The smoky heat provided by the Chipotle Sauce sets this tortilla soup apart from the ordinary.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Chipotle Sauce (see below), or to taste
  • 8 cups chicken stock

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
