Pit Fire Spicy Chicken Soup
6 dried pasilla chilies
6 dried guajillo chilies
10 C. water, divided
2 onions
6 cloves garlic
1 t. pepper
2 T. dried Mexican oregano, divided
1 (4 3/4-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1 (29-ounce) can white hominy, drained
1/2 t. salt

Shredded red cabbage, radish slices, diced onion, lime wedges, avocado slices, for garnish

Remove the stems and seeds from the pasilla and guajillo chilies and discard. Place the chilies in a saucepan and cover them with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat and set it aside for the chilies to soften.

Dice 1 onion and set it aside. Cut the second onion in half and dice half of it. Cut the remaining half lengthwise into slices.

Working in batches, pour the chilies and their cooking liquid, 1 1/2 diced onions, the garlic, pepper and 1 tablespoon of oregano into a blender and puree until smooth.

Add the remaining 6 cups of water to the chile puree and strain
through a fine mesh sieve, using a spoon to push all of the chile
juice into a large stock pot. Throw away the solids.

Add the chicken pieces, hominy and onion slices to the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer until the chicken is tender and comes off the bone easily, about 1 hour. Add the remaining oregano and salt to the soup.
Remove the chicken from the pot. Remove the meat from the bones, return it to the soup and heat through, discarding the bones. Skim the fat from the top of the soup before serving.

Garnish with the cabbage, radish slices, onion, lime wedges and avocado.

Serve this with crisp tortilla chips.
