Chicken Tortilla Soup

I only needed one of these chile pods...
what I am going to do with the rest?

Last night I made the most delicious soup...Chicken Tortilla Soup. I had to go to a small Mexican market in Oxnard just to find one of the ingredients but it was worth it. It's got great flavor and I love anything that has chips. I topped the soup with sour cream and salsa. Yum! I used a recipe from a Rick Bayless cookbook I got from the library. I'm really looking forward to trying more of his recipes. Here is the link
I was unable to find the epazote sprig, but there are many more markets in Oxnard that may carry it. If you've seen it anywhere, please let me know.
