DIRECTIONS

Start by heating up oil in a pot, then slowly add in garlic, onion, tomato, chopped pasilla chile, chicken broth, tortilla strips and epazote. Turn up the heat slightly to bring the mixture to a boil. Add in salt and pepper to taste.

Once the mixture has come to a boil, remove from heat. Pour the mixture into a blender and blend for about a minute or until the mixture reaches a consistency you like. Return mixture to the pot and cook at low heat until thickened.

When you're ready to serve, garnish with sliced chicken breast, julienned tortillas, panela cheese, LALA® Mexican Style Sour Cream, avocado and grilled pasilla chile.
