As Rach says, this is such a simple dinner, you’re going to love it! It’s a vegetarian—but very hearty—green tortilla soup. And if you’re not a vegetarian and want to add the traditional chicken, just shred some rotisserie chicken and stir it in. The homemade tortilla strips add great crunch and texture.

Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high to high heat, add zucchini, poblanos, onion and salt. Partially cover and soften 7 to 8 minutes. Remove half of the vegetables from the pan and grate in the garlic and add the spices and black pepper. Add the stock, chiles and tomatillos and let come to a simmer. Puree in a high-powered blender or with an immersion blender, then add back the reserved vegetables and simmer together 5 minutes.
