If you’ve made a soup before or watched someone make a soup before, you know that a recipe is a mere suggestion. Soup is more art than science, you have a loose outline of what you’re trying to accomplish and it doesn't matter how you get there as long as you get there. While this may be intimidating for some, it’s a great exercise in freestyling for the aspiring home cook. For example, let’s say you’ve read this recipe and you want your Chicken Tortilla Soup really spicy. Well you know what you want so you’ve got some options, you could add a few more jalapenos, or perhaps you could experiment with some additional Dan-O’s Chipotle and Spicy. Both are valid options but it’s up to you to decide how much you want to add! You’ll only grow as a cook through experimenting and trying new things, so experiment, get weird with it, and make the best Dan Chicken Tortilla Soup you can.
