Here is our favorite tortilla soup recipe - although we never make it exactly the same every time. We love the thick base and veggies!
Step 1: Our Secret Ingredient - Cut 2 Corn Tortillas (or 1 flour tortilla) into pieces.
Step 2: Chop Half of an Onion and 2 Cloves Garlic.
Step 3: Saute Garlic and Onion In Olive Oil in Dutch Oven or Large Pot
Step 4: Get ready for next step when garlic and onions are soft and brown.
Step 5: Add 1/2 tsp Cumin and 1 tsp Chili Powder, Stir
Step 6: Add one can diced tomatoes and stir.
Step 7: Add 2 Cups Chicken Broth, 1 cup Water, Cut Tortillas, Stir
Bring to a boil then simmer 10 minutes.
Step 8: Using a stick blender - process the soup mixture until smooth.
Step 9: Add one can re fried beans, 1 cup of frozen veggies (corn bell peppers,
zucchini, etc) and 1 cup cooked diced chicken.
Step 10: Spoon into bowls and garnish with cheese, cilantro, and tortilla chips.
