  Saute tortillas with garlic and epazote over medium heat until

  chicken stock. Bring to a boil again, then reduce heat to simmer. Add

  Strain and pour into warm soup bowls.  Garnish each bowl with an equal
  portion of chicken breast, avocado, shredded cheese, and crisp
  tortilla strips. Serve immediately.
  
  Soup may be made one day ahead and gently reheated before serving with
  garnishes.
  
  Chef's Note:  This soup has been on the menu at the restaurant at The
  Mansion on Turtle Creek since it opened in 1985. According to
  executive chef Dean Fearing, "When Tortilla Soup is ordered, it is
  brought to the table in a tureen for individual service by the
  waiter, who garnishes each bowl according to the customer's desire."
