Recipe by Sherry

This recipe came from my high school Home Ec. class (which I took 19 years ago). I have never seen another tortilla soup like it. I describe this soup as having a taste somewhere between salsa, tomato soup, and spaghetti sauce. It is very simple to make. I use 2 cups of water and two chicken boullion cubes instead of a can of chicken broth. Also we like garlic so I usually use about 3 cloves of garlic. To make this soup vegetarian don't add the beef and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
