    1       c            Onions, chopped
    4       ea           Garlic cloves, chopped
    3       tb           Vegetable oil
    2       ea           Jalapeno chiles, minced
    1       t            Cumin
      1/2   ts           Oregano
    3 1/2   c            Tomatoes, chopped
    3       c            Stock
      1/3   c            Lime juice
                         Salt, to taste
                         Tortilla chips, crumbled
                         Cilantro, chopped
 
   In a soup pot, saute onions & garlic in oil until
   softened.  Add the chiles, cumin & oregano & saute a
   few more minutes.  Add tomatoes & sprinkle with a
   little salt.  Cover the pot & cook gently until the
   tomatoes begin to release their juices.  Stir
   occasionally.  Add stock & simmer, covered, for 15
   minutes.  Add lime juice & check the seasoning.
   
   Serve topped with crumbled tortilla chips (I find that
   these are not necessary) & garnish with cilantro.
