hi, tortilla soup is my favorite soup, but i wasn't sure how to make it, so i asked my mom (she's a really good cook), to help me make-up a recipe for it. This is what we came up with, i really like it, and i hope you will too. ( I use a 5 quart rival smartpot, you could break recipe in half for smaller crock pot).
