There is nothing better for Gameday than my One Love Wings. Period!

My culinary Team was stellar staying in the game preparing hundreds of pounds of what was the most talked about dish that evening. Amazing, how a few well prepared wings with good seasoning, grilled and tossed in made from scratch sauce wins every time!

Corn Tortilla Soup

In NYC Sunday 1/25?  Join George for a meet & greet at the NY Times Travel Show at Create TV Exhibit (#978). He'll share his Signature Seasoned North Fork Chips for the first 100 who stop by. And, one lucky winner will be selected to receive an autographed cookbook. 

All Natural, Farm Fresh, Grown and Kettle Cooked From Sidor Farms. North Fork Chips Original Chef George Hirsch's Signature Seasoning dusted with Herb & Spice and a Smoky Garlic Kick!

The making of tortillas dates back approximately 10,000 BC, according to Mayan legend. Tortillas are really not much different today. Tortilla soup is ideal to serve up on numerous occasions from a game-day party to even a church supper. The ingredients are universally available along with it's wide appeal. I've prepared this recipe around the globe with several variations including fish, shellfish, beef or pork. 

Taking the time to pre-grill the chicken, sausage and vegetables in this recipe makes a great flavor enhancer to this soup. After-all, when tailgating, the entire soup would be prepared on a grill. I've also included instructions for this recipe to be fully cooked indoors, in case the snow happens to bury your grill, or just dig that grill out!
