Delicious. I made for Cinco de Mayo and have never had tortilla soup before, so I didn't know what to expect, but this was delicious. Thanks Elainemay for a wonderful recipe.

Something is missing! it's the tortilla's. The soup was made and when I went to get the chips they were gone. It seems that they had never been there because nobody else had seen them *cough*. On the bright side the soup is quite good enough without them. It has deep wonderful flavor and the cheese was a perfect accent addition. Mine took about an hour because I simmered it longer while on the trail of the vanishing tortillas, lol. It's very well seasoned without anything being overpowering. Made for Photo Tag.
