Our family loves this soup! I lost the recipe and was so happy to find something like my original here. I add whatever veggies I have on hand. I also add extra salsa. I cook my tortellini separately and only add whatever I am sure we are going to eat, b/c I don't like mushy pasta. I like to keep a container of tortellini and a container of soup in the fridge for weekday lunches.

By far one of my favorite soup recipes of all time. It's so simple and is excellent on a chilly night. I usually double the tortellini or my BF ends up picking them all out and keeping them for himself. Even makes excellent leftovers!

This was indeed flavorful, but it tasted more like a sauce to me - I think I may try this again with some beef or chicken added and serve it over tortellini as a sauce rather than serve as a soup. Thanks for posting an interesting combination!

Mmmmm...Mmmmmm...Mmmmm! This soup was fabulous and was so easy. I used petite cut tomatoes with garlic and olive oil for the tomatoes and added some red pepper with the green pepper because I had some on hand. The only change I made was to make it in the crockpot. I added all the ingredients (and I used frozen tortellini straight from the freezer) except the green and red peppers and cooked on low for exactly 3 1/2 hours and it was perfect. I added the peppers and stired it up and it was a perfect after church meal to serve for company. They enjoyed it som much that they asked for the recipe! Thanks for sharing it :)

Vicky...this was really a great soup. My DH 'loves' soups of all kinds and gave this one a 2-thumbs up. The addition of the Picante sauce really gave it some kick (I used hot) and I added corn, which I seem to add to everything lately.

Very good - the salsa gives it a good depth of flavor. Kids and adults love it.

This soup was absolutely delicious! My DH took one bite and said this deserves a high rating! The only changes I made were to substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth and I threw in a bit of corn I had. It was very simple to put together and didn't take very long. I served it with garlic bread and we made a meal out of it! Thanks for sharing your recipe Vicky!

Excellent soup. I has some asparagus so I threw it in too. Also added some corn and peas. It was almost a meal in itself!! Thanks VickyJ.
