Consomme is a clear rich soup traditionally made with beef or chicken but you can make it with just about anything, including my favorite, Doritos. Take eight cups of Doritos, which is about one big bag, and mix it with 8 cups of water and bring to a boil. Take your pan off the heat and let it steep for thirty minutes, like you're making a Dorito tea. Strain the tea, discarding the solids and return the liquid to the pot, then bring it back to a boil. Combine one half teaspoon gelatin with two cups of water and add that to your Dorito tea. Then place the pot in the freezer until frozen solid. Unmold the Dorito ice by running hot water around the sides of the pot. Then place the Dorito ice in the colander lined with two layers of cheese cloth. Then put the colander over a bowl and it defrost at cool room temperature, which takes about a day. When your ice is completely melted you'll see all the Dorito scum and matter trapped inside the cheesecloth with the gelatin but down below a crystal clear Dorito consomme. So what can you do with a Dorito consomme? Well you can add seared shrimp, corn and cilantro to make my favorite Southwestern style soup or really any other recipe that use some sort of consomme, but with a Southwestern kick.
