I have had a great tortilla soup at one of my favorite restaurants, and I combined a few recipes to make one of my own!

Awesome dish! I added a little bit of fajita seasoning to add a little extra flavor but overall, very easy and very good!

We love this recipe! It is a regular item on our menu. We skip the salt and only use no salt added beans and corn. Even then, it is plenty salty.
