With the cold snap we had, I though some soup would be good. Used some leftover chicken rolls from a previous cook here (http://www.theqjoint.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1796), so it had some grilled flavor. This was my first shot at homemade soup, so I was entering new territory here.

Started with a mirepoix of carrots, celery, and green onions sauted in butter. Added some chicken stock and garlic and let it simmer a while, then raised it to a boil and added rough-chopped chicken and cheese tortellini to cook. Seasoning was a little season salt, sea salt, pepper, and a few dashes of Tabasco to the pot for some vinegar and pepper undertones. Kids liked it, so I consider it a success. :woohoo:

Only pic I have. Very chunky texture, and thick enough to let a spoon stand up in the bowl. My kinda soup! :thumbs up:

Thanks for the comments, y'all. I had the last of it last night, and it aged very well.

:tap: That's the one thing I missed. A good slab of buttered bread would've been perfect.
