  1. In a large soup kettle, cook green pepper, onion and garlic in oil until soft; approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 45-60 minutes (more flavor the longer it simmers).
  3. Serve in bowls. Top each with crushed tortilla chips and your choice of shredded cheese immediately before serving.

I added chopped portabella mushrooms to the veggies in oil, used drained, canned chicken (it worked) and garnished with fresh cilantro along with the cheese & chips. It was delicious, esp. with the cilantro adding lots of Mexican flavor. It was also very easy and quick to make, and hearty. I highly recommend this soup!
