It was wonderful but I changed a couple of things: 1- I put 5 cups of chicken broth 2- added 2 cups of water 3- instead of the tomato paste and tomatoes I put 1 can (28on)tomato diced herbs & spices 4- instead of th dried mexican oregano I put 1 packet taco seasoning. I also sliced the tortillas into thin stripes and placed on baking sheet at 250 degrees untill crispy about 30-40 minutes (instead of using oil). I made a mexican meal for Easter for my family and this soup was a big hit. Thank you
