Made the first time as stated....just not a stunner...lacked a real depth of flavor. Second time used same ingredients with adjustments. Omit canned chilies and fresh tomatoes. Use 14oz can of Hunts diced tomatos with green chilies. Use 6 oz V-8. Omit salt in recipe. Triple the beef and tripple the chicken flavors...I use Jamison Soup Base. Use metal stick mixer to partially puree the tomatos. Omit fresh Chilie, use 7-8 rounds canned hot peppers ( your choice). Quarter 2 8" zucinni and chop, saute and add to soup. Add 1/2 cup frozen corn. Served with mexican corn bread, salad and Asiago Cheese bread for dipping...yum...yum.

This soup is excellent. I cook in a nursing home and wasn't sure how it would go over. I was worried maybe it would be to spicy. They are picky eaters. They loved it some asked for seconds and I only gave out 1 alternate meal. I served black bean and cheese quesadillas with it yum. I highly recommend this recipe. It was very easy to make also. I made enough for 150 people.

We love this soup. I season the chicken with poultry seasoning and saute it and shred it as it cooks. I add veg-all, zuchinni & yellow squash. To save time, I use the leftover broken chips from my Tortilla Chips bag that I never know what to do with! I garnish with sour cream, avocado, & chesse! YUMMY!

OMG this soup was delicious! I added whole corn on the cob broken in two pieces, also added oregano. Next time I will add in spanish rice and and calabazitas. I omitted the boullion cubes and the can of green chilis. Thank you so much for such a great soup!

This was really great soup! I think it is my favourite that I have made of this kind!! I did add just under 1/8 tsp more salt and 1/4 tsp more sugar. We had broken blue tortilla chips and monterray jack cheese, and 1/4 an avocado as garnishes...SOOO good! Thanks for the keeper!

Very tasty. I served it with sour cream which was a fantastic addition. We didn't have a fresh tomato on hand, but a can of diced tomatoes worked fine as a substitute.

This soup was fantastic. I have been searching for a great tortilla soup for years and this is the one I will make over and over again. I only changed it a little. I put a can of rotel tomatoes and chilies in with it as I had it sitting in my pantry. I didn't have V8 so I used tomato juice. My husband loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

Delicious, to save time sometimes I just use precooked chicken. I also add extra cumin and a couple of splashes of hot sauce.
