    Andtototoo!'s Note:

    This soup can either be made vegetarian or with chicken broth. It is a different twist on Mexican soup, but is easy and delicious. This doesn't make much, so you will probably need to double the recipe for company.

      Awesome pureed tortilla soup! I was craving such a soup after having some at BJ's Brewery. Found this recipe and went for it with a few minor adjustments: 1) I used a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes instead of 2 fresh. 2) I used a 7 oz. can of diced green, fire roasted chiles in addition to 2 serranos.. HOWEVER... I would recommend using ONLY the green chiles and 1 or no serranos, as this was WAY to spicy for me, and I love and eat a LOT of very spicy foods. 3) I did not have any corn tortillas on hand, so I used a couple of Tbs. of masa harina, instead. What a flavorful and filling soup! So good. Not sure if it was exactly the same as teh BJ's version (too spicy to tell! haha), but it was so delicious, it doesn't even matter!
