    This soup was AMAZING!!!!!! Very easy and quick to make. I added black beans for a more southwest kick. Instead of cherry tomatoes, I used zesty diced tomates from the can and they added great flavor as well. I recommend this recipe it yields a lot of food as well. Great family or social meal to serve friends!!!!!

    Tasteful, elegant and nourishing

    Helen from Texas

    Unlike so many restaurant tortilla soups, which are either overwhelmingly salty or tomatoe-y, this soup has a subtle, spicy aroma with a rich though delicate flavor -courtesy of a plethora of fresh vegetables and cumin. It became an instant family favorite.

    Delicious

    Melanie from Coos Bay, Oregon

    This hearty soup is the best! I have made this for Cinco De Mayo parties and everyone loved it. Also my family isn't to keen on vegetables and especially my husband. So it's a way to feed them healthy food and they love it! My daughter had to do a report and she chose to do one on my cooking and picked her favorite food, which of course is this soup! Thanks for having such wonderful healthy food recipes.
