Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by JLBurnell

I found this on, and it had a lot of rave reviews. My husband was a vegetarian for many years, and sometimes he just doesn't want meat. I'll keep this for him.

As written, this was a good soup, but not outstanding. With cumin as the only spice, I thought it lacked dimension. I ended up adding a little chile powder (pure chile, not the spice blend) and a dab of Recipe #279702. I also added yellow squash for extra veggies. Even with those changes, this soup was super easy. I served it over baked tortilla chips with the suggested garnishes. I will certainly make it again when I need something quick and easy on a cold day. Served it with a tossed salad with Recipe #219409 to round out the meal. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
