I know there are a lot of tortilla soups out there, but this is my hubby's absolute favorite. This is a brothy type soup, but filling enough to be dinner!

I love this soup.. I don't really know what else to say, my dh loves it as well as my lil sis who stays with us for the time being. I don't do anything different from the recipe except lil sis likes to add cheetos instead of shredded cheese. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Delicious! I think the combination of beef broth and chicken broth is key. We all really loved this soup. I used all options and loved every one! The only change I made in the recipe was to use only one of the cans of corn (I had accidentally used the other for another recipe) and it turned out to be the perfect amount for us. Thank you! Made for CQ 2 - Tex-Mex

This is our favorite recipe for tortilla soup. I got mine out of a Better Home and Garden magazine in 1991, originally. Thank you so much for posting it.
