      Excellent Soup! We were trying to duplicate the tortilla soup made by Baby Acapulco's Restaurant in Texas...This was very close. We omitted the diced tomatoes and Ro-Tel tomatoes. Didn't use a whole packet of taco seasoning (about 2/3 packet). Only used 4 tortillas to thicken as my husband likes his soup thin. To top it at the end we added sliced avacado, deep fried corn tortilla strips, and a little more cheese. Accidentally forgot the milk...but didn't hurt the taste.

      Great soup! I added corn and served Tostitos crumbled on top instead of the corn ones in the soup. I will have to try that next time though. I think I used too many tomatoes and I would probably cut the taco seasoning down to 1/2 or 3/4 of a packet next time to save on the sodium. *update - I made this again with the tortillas in the soup and it was awesome! I halved the recipe and it was the perfect amount. Made my own taco seasoning and it was perfect. Only used the rotel with shredded chicken from the crock pot. I love tortilla soup!

      Yes, this is excellent. 7 tortillas was plenty to thicken it for us. Ten made it too much like a thick stew for our taste.I added a tsp of cumin, a half cup chopped cilantro, and a can of corn. I have also made it w/o the cheese and milk to save some big calories and it's still terrific!

      Oh Yes, I love Tortilla Soup! I've never made it before, but this recipe made it so easy! This was so Good. Thanks for a keeper. The only thing I changed was that I added some cumin to the vegetables as I was cooking them, I didn't have any celery so I omitted and I had three cans of chicken broth and 1 if vegetable. It didn't mess up a thing in my book! Next time I will add a little less tomatoe and maybe some corn! I agree that you should start with 6-8 tortillas, as my soup was plenty thick after 6. Thanks again Elmolvsu.
